Marsden Hartley (1877-1943) was a painter, poet, writer, and pioneer of American modernism. Born in Lewiston, Maine, he lived a peripatetic life, working in Paris, Berlin, New York, Mexico, New Mexico, Bermuda, and elsewhere before returning to Maine in 1934. This superbly illustrated book encompasses the extraordinary range and depth of Hartley's creative output. Some one-hundred and five of his works - landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and abstract paintings - demonstrate the visual power for which Hartley gained acclaim as well as the development of his art over the course of his thirty-five year career.
The book gathers together the most recent scholarship on Hartley's work, discussing such topics as the artist's working methods, his self-portraits, the influence of Cezanne on his work, and Hartley's attitudes toward Native Americans. A chronology of his life is included, and each painting is accompanied by a full catalogue entry.
This book also serves as the catalogue of an exhibition organized by the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art and traveling to the Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C., and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City.
