Synopsis

Working at a pivotal time in art history, artist Marsden Hartley was in the center of it all. In his classic collection of essays, Adventures in the Arts, he offers curious readers a friendly tour of his interests, personal experiences, and close acquaintances; so many of which proved to be the most important people and ideas of the time. From Impressionism and American Art, to the birth of Modernism and the spread of photography, Hartley offers us a familiarity with and an understanding of twentieth century art from its very foundations. :: The papers in this book are not intended in any way to be professional treatises. They must be viewed in the light of entertaining conversations. Their possible value lies in their directness of impulse, and not in weight of argument. I could not wish to go into the qualities of art more deeply. A reaction, to be pleasant, must be simple. This is the apology I have to offer: Reactions, then, through direct impulse, and not essays by means of stiffened analysis. Marsden Hartley
