John Marin

Alfred Stieglitz Collection

John Marin has been called one of the most successful artists within the Stieglitz circles.  The circle of American artists that Stieglitz surrounded himself with were most concerned with the European modern art that was being created at the time.  Marin in particular was fascinated with the avant-garde and produced work with power and energy.  Although, Stieglitz has been attributed with Marin’s success, it was Marin who was responsible for providing an American interpretation of the European avant-garde movement.
