About this artwork

An early modernist painter, poet, and essayist, Marsden Hartley was born in Maine and educated in Cleveland, Ohio, and New York. He came to the attention of Alfred Stieglitz and joined the group of influential modern artists who showed their work in Stieglitz’s 291 Gallery in New York, including Georgia O’Keeffe and Charles Demuth. Something of a nomad, Hartley traveled restlessly throughout the United States and Europe for much of his life, eventually settling in Maine during his later years.
