This new colouring book is devoted to the remarkable artwork of the pre-eminent American modernist Marsden Hartley (1877 1943). Hartley grew up in poverty in Maine, but, full of creativity and imagination, he dreamed of travel and adventure. He made his way to Europe in the years before the First World War and created exciting modernist paintings based on the visual influences that he encountered in the vibrant cities of Paris, Berlin and Munich. Solitary by nature, Hartley never lost his wanderlust, and throughout his life found inspiration in many other landscapes and cultures, including in southern France, Italy, Bermuda, New Mexico, Mexico and Canada. When ultimately he returned to the Maine of his childhood, Hartley did so with decades of artistic knowledge and cultural engagement. This book provides the opportunity to immerse yourself in the natural world that Hartley loved: the vast deserts of the American Southwest, the windswept beaches of New England, the sun-soaked hillsides of Provence, and the dramatic peaks of the Bavarian Alps. Also featured are some of Hartley's powerful still lifes and abstract compositions genres in which he often experimented with new ideas, styles and motifs and several striking potraits. Be guided by Hartley's bold use of colour or express yourself through your own choice of palette and design! AUTHOR: Rick Kinsel is President of the Vilcek Foundation in New York.
