"German-born Oscar Bluemner (1867-1938) was an important member of the circle that formed around Alfred Stieglitz's 291 Gallery in the early twentieth century, yet he remains far less known than colleagues such as Georgia O'Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, Arthur Dove, and Charles Demuth. His works - powerful, compelling, and alive with color - reflect his varied influences, from the Neo-Impressionism of Vincent van Gogh to the modernism of Franz Marc." "Barbara Haskell's full-scale, scholarly study of Bluemner's work, along with the major retrospective it accompanies, examines his evolution from budding architect to modernist innovator. Mining the artist's personal diaries and unearthing new research, she illuminates his entire oeuvre, including the vivid, richly symbolic landscapes that established Bluemner as a leading artist of his day. Insightful anecdotes and fresh perspectives also reveal his struggles as an immigrant, his turbulent relationship with Stieglitz, and the eccentricities that inspired his most deeply personal work." "With an essay by conservator Ulrich Birkmaier on Bluemner's innovative painting techniques, a selection of the artist's writings, and an array of illustrations, this monograph offers a portrait of an unsung master - an artist who belongs in the first rank of American early-twentieth-century modernism."--Jacket
