Precisionism - "A movement in the art of the U.S.A. from c. 1915 whose distinguishing feature was the application of quasi-Cubist techniques of abstraction to the depiction of everyday and preferably industrial subjects. For this reason the movement was also known as Cubist-Realism. And because of the sharp lucidity of treatment adopted by most of the artists, in many ways akin to that of Wadsworth and Nash in England, their hard outlines, solid shadows and slick, impersonal surfaces, they were also known as Immaculates. The style involved a fairly advanced degree of 'dehumanization' in favour of the attempt to endow comonplace and industrial subjects with epic or heroic character. . . ."[Osborne, Harold, editor. The Oxford C ompanion to Twentieth-Century Art. Oxford University Press. 1988.]
