About this artwork

After spending 18 months in New Mexico, Marsden Hartley returned to New York in 1919, but he continued
to paint the Southwest from memory, concluding that true American color existed only in autumnal New England and arid New Mexico. In Landscape No. 3, Cash Entry Mines, New Mexico, soaring mountains tower over mines, minimizing the industrial fate of the landscape. Drawing on the thinking of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman, and the Hudson River School painters, Hartley hoped that nature would overwhelm and control industry, rather than the reverse. Alfred Stieglitz exhibited this painting in his gallery An American Place.
