Marsden Hartley’s Maine

Met Breuer, New York

NOW CLOSED

This exhibition will explore Marsden Hartley’s complex, sometimes contradictory, and visually arresting relationship with his native state—from the lush Post-Impressionist inland landscapes with which he launched his career, to the later roughly rendered paintings of Maine’s rugged coastal terrain, its hardy inhabitants, and the magisterial Mount Katahdin. ‘Marsden Hartley’s Maine’ will illuminate Maine as a critical factor in understanding the artist’s high place in American art history. It was a lifelong source of inspiration intertwined with his personal history, cultural milieu, and desire to create a regional expression of American modernism. Find out more about the Masrden Hartley exhibition from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s website.
