Marsden Hartley at Louisiana
America’s first great modern painter of the 20th century
This autumn Louisiana Museum of Modern Art presents the biggest exhibition so far in Europe of the American painter Marsden Hartley, an important figure in American art history. It is the first time in 60 years that a retrospective exhibition of the artist can be seen on European soil. The works in the exhibition have been borrowed from the greatest American museums and private collections. The exhibition is thus a large-scale, ambitious venture for Louisiana.
Hailed as "America’s first great modern painter of the 20th century" and "one of the most intriguing art historical subjects of all time", Marsden Hartley remains relatively unknow to a European audience. This Louisiana presentation marks the first major retrospective exhibition of his work in Europe in over 60 years.
