Marsden Hartley: The German paintings 1913-1915

American modernist painter, poet, and writer Marsden Hartley (1877-1943) lived in France and Germany from 1913 to 1916.

After spending some time in Paris, where he mingled with Gertrude Stein's avant-garde coterie of artists and writers, Hartley moved to Berlin.

Here he became involved with Herwarth Walden's Sturm gallery, participating in its First German Autumn Salon in 1913. While in Berlin Hartley's style developed an element of abstraction and he concentrated on motifs relating to world war one, such as flags and military insignia.

It was in Berlin that the artist painted some of his most dynamic works, which are the subject of this exhibition at the Neue Nationalgalerie.
