Marsden Hartley: The German Paintings 1913–1915 (50 min)

Friday, September 19, 2014 | 2 pm

Tour Marsden Hartley: The German Paintings 1913–1915, an exhibition featuring 25 seminal works by the influential American modernist painter created during his years in Berlin (1913–15). The paintings reveal the profound impact of World War I and elucidate the artist's appropriation of military symbols and Native American motifs. Hartley’s paintings from this period reflect dynamic shifts in style and subject matter, and evidence a critical moment in his body of work. The exhibition, organized by the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, in collaboration with LACMA, coincides with the centennial commemoration of World War I. The presentation in Los Angeles marks the first exhibition of Hartley's work in Southern California in over thirty years, and the first focused exhibition of Hartley’s Berlin paintings in the United States since they were created.
