schema:description""In Marsden Hartley, Cassidy, sensitive to the psychological and gender analysis traditionally central to interpretations of Hartley, becomes the first scholar to reassess his late work in light of contemporary American perceptions of race, ethnicity, place, and history. This new book resonates not only as a seminal Hartley study and a complex art and cultural history, but as an example of applied early twentieth-century American intellectual history informed by an impressive command of primary and secondary interdisciplinary literature. Numerous rich illustrations, as well as transcriptions of several key essays by Hartley - some never before published, including "This Country of Maine" (1937-38) - round out this revolutionary treatment."--BOOK JACKET."@en
