Marin in Oil, 1913-1953

Saturday, July 16, 1988

1905 Building

Although much attention has been focused on the watercolors of American modernist John Marin (1870–1953), the exhibition Marin in Oil, 1913–1953 provided an opportunity to savor the strength, assurance, and bravura of his works in oil on canvas. The intensity of his smaller paintings—most of them landscapes—identify Marin as an important precursor of the Abstract Expressionists.

This exhibition was organized by Klaus Kertess, the Robert Lehman Curator of The Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, New York, where it was also on view.
