The Precisionism of Sheeler often, as can be seen in some of these pieces, closely approached Photorealism. But that quality in Sheeler's work was not so much a precursor to Photorealism, as one of the natural evolutions of Futurism, which simply had set aside some of the more Cubist elements of that movement, while it still kept close to the love of angular subjects. Sheeler was certainly a very interesting artist.
