Stanton MacDonald-Wright (1890-1973) was a modern American artist. He was a co-founder of Synchromism, an early abstract, colour-based mode of painting, which was the first American avant-garde art movement to receive international attention.
MacDonald-Wright moved to Paris in 1906 during the formative years of Cubism. Though Cubism was the strongest influence on his style of painting, he opposed it's linear and monochromatic tendencies. As a result he, along with Morgan Russell (another American artist living in Paris) developed a theory of painting they called Synchromism. Their goal was to make colour the subject of their paintings in the same way that musical tone is the subject of symphonic compositions.
