A new exhibition featuring American Modernist Marsden Hartley opened Friday at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe. “Marsden Hartley and the West” is the title of the new exhibit, which shows a progression in the artist’s work between 1919 and 1923.The exhibit was curated by the museum’s assistant curator Heather Hole, who has brought together 41 works by Hartley to fill three of the museum’s galleries.“This is the first exhibition that brings together all of Hartley’s New Mexico work,” Hole said.Hartley, who was both a painter and a poet, was born in 1877, and up until 1914 had been most well known for his abstraction. He had met Alfred Stieglitz in 1909 and been a part of the Stieglitz circle, which included most famously Georgia O’Keeffe, and had also lived in Paris and Berlin, where he lived among the avant-garde including Gertrude Stein and Pablo Picasso. Hartley came to New Mexico shortly after World War I with the hope of developing a purely American style.He spent little more than a year in New Mexico, but the landscape influenced his painting for the rest of his life, Hole said. Hartley is considered one of the foremost American painters of the first half of the 20th century.
