Marsden Hartley and the West : the search for an American modernism by Heather Hole( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered the greatest of the early American modernists, the painter Marsden Hartley (1877-1943) traveled the United States and Europe in his search for a distinctive American aesthetic. His stay in New Mexico resulted in an extraordinary series of landscape paintings - created in New Mexico, New York, and Europe between 1918 and 1924 - that shows an evolution in style and thinking that is important for understanding both Hartley's oeuvre and American modernism in the postwar years." "In Marsden Hartley and the West, Heather Hole examines this pivotal stage of the painter's career, drawing upon his writings and considering his involvement with the Stieglitz circle and its "soil-and-spirit" philosophy, the Taos art colony, New York Dada, as well as weighing the impact of such historical events as World War I. Within this setting the author analyzes the pastels and oil paintings - many of them rarely seen and previously unpublished - that suggest Hartleys increasingly ambivalent response to the land. Beginning with optimistic, naturalistic views, the New Mexico works grew darker and more tumultuous, increasingly reflecting a sense of loss brought on by war. The paintings become a site where the landscapes of memory, self, and nation merge while reflecting broader modernist debates about Americanness and a usable past."--Jacket

Marsden Hartley : the German paintings 1913-1915 by Dieter Scholz( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in German and English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American painter Marsden Hartley (1877-1943) lived in Europe from 1913 to 1915. After spending some time in Paris and Munich he moved to Berlin, where he painted his most impressive works. Hartley was associated with Herwarth Walden's Sturm gallery and participated in its 'First German Autumn Salon' in 1913, which featured numerous international artists. Immediately prior to and after his Berlin years, Hartley cultivated a style of painting that was moderately figurative, however the years 1913 to 1915 marked an apogee of abstraction in his career. During these years he developed a completely independent vernacular, which placed him at the forefront of the avant-garde of the time. His paintings from this period literally explode off the canvas, they are composed of bright, starkly contrasting colours that directly border one another. The theme around which these works revolve is the First World War. Flags, military standards and insignia such as the Iron Cross form recurring motifs in the paintings. Hartley's relationship with the Prussian Officer Karl von Freybourg, who died just months after the outbreak of war, led to Hartley producing such masterworks as 'Portrait of a German Officer' (1914, Metropolitan Museum, New York), in which abstract forms and military paraphanalia are so densely interwoven that the resulting portrait is composed purely of symbols."--Staatliche Museen zu Berlin website, viewed June 5, 2014
