Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Marin (December 23, 1870 - October 2, 1953) born in Rutherford, New Jersey, was an early American modernist artist. He was known for his abstract landscapes and watercolors.Marin grew up in Weehawken, New Jersey, and attended the Stevens Institute of Technology for a year.His experience with architecture might have contributed to the role played by architectural themes in his paintings and watercolors. Marin is often credited with influencing the Abstract Expressionists. He was among the first American artists to make abstract paintings, and his treatment of paint-handling oils almost like watercolors-his forays into abstraction, and his use of evocative stretches of bare canvas caught the eye of younger painters.show more
