Demuth painted Masts in the seaside town of Gloucester, Massachusetts, where he spent the summer of 1919. Demuth worked in a cubist-inspired style that came to be called precisionism. Here, he presents geometric shapes that could be read as an erect mast, its radiating sails, and the roof of a warehouse. Yet Demuth was not overly concerned with the specificity of the content or the location depicted; he exhibited this painting in 1920 with the vague title Chimnies, Ventilators, or Whatever.
