Marsden Hartley Life

Marsden Hartley (January 4, 1877-September 2, 1943) was an American Modernist painter, poet, and essayist.

Hartley learned his painting skills by visiting Cubists in Paris and Berlin.

Early life and education

Hartley was born in Lewiston, Maine, where his English parents had settled. He was the youngest of nine children. His mother died when he was eight years old and his father remarried Martha Marsden four years later. Edmund Hartley's birth name was Edmund Hartley; he later assumed Marsden as his first name when he was in his early twenties. A few years after his mother's death when Hartley was 14, his siblings and his dad left Maine and Maine, where he worked in a shoe factory for a year. Hartley recalled his New England childhood as a period of dreadful sadness, so much so that he once described the New England accent as "a sad recollection [that] rushed into my very flesh like sharpened knives" in a letter to Alfred Stieglitz.

Hartley began his art studies at the Cleveland School of Art in 1892, where he received a scholarship.

Hartley studied painting at the New York School of Art under William Merritt Chase and then attended the National Academy of Design in 1898. Hartley was a huge fan of Albert Pinkham Ryder and visited his Greenwich Village as often as possible. Hartley's friendship with Ryder, as well as Walt Whitman's writings and American transcendentalists Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson's, encouraged him to think of art as a spiritual journey.
