Arthur B. Carles and His Expanding Circle tells the story of Arthur B. Carles (1882–1952) and his influence on the development of modernism and abstract painting in Philadelphia. Best known for his daring use of color and the verve of his personality, Carles was an influential instructor at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) who embraced the modern age and introduced his students to the work and ideas of the European avant-garde.
