Marsden Hartley was first published in 1952. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.
Art connoisseurs and students, who are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of Marsden Hartley in an understanding of modern at, will welcome this book. It contains a biographical and critical essay on the artist and his work, a checklist of items in the Hudson D. Walker collection of Hartley's works, a biography of writings by and about Hartley, a chronology of his life, and halftone reproductions illustrating his development as an artist. The illustrations are taken from works in the Walker collection, which is on long-term loan to the University of Minnesota Gallery.
