About this artwork
John Marin created his first significant etchings during his crucial years of study in Paris, but these prints owed more to his fellow American James Abbott McNeil Whistler than to the early forms of Cubism. Weehawken No. I however, demonstrates the impact of the artist’s observation of Cubism in Paris on his mature style.
