John Marin: Modernism at Midcentury


The exhibition John Marin: Modernism at Midcentury, which ran at the PMA June 23-October 09, 2011, showcased John Marin's early works from the 1930s through the early 1950s. These works, nearly 70 in all, have been largely overlooked in art historical literature. Debra Bricker Balken, curator and author, newly situates these works within midcentury modernism and argues that critics saw them as precursors to Abstract Expressionism.
