  • During his lifetime, American modernist John Marin was the country’s most celebrated artist. His improvisational approach to color, paint handling, perspective, and movement situated him as a leading figure in modern art and helped influence the Abstract Expressionist movement.

    This exhibition—the first major comprehensive exhibition addressing John Marin’s modernist achievements in the watercolor medium—showcases how Marin reinvented the process of watercolor and transformed American painting. Comprising more than 100 works, the exhibition includes a group of 40 watercolors donated to the Art Institute of Chicago from the collection of Alfred Stieglitz by his wife Georgia O'Keeffe―many of which have rarely or never been on public display. The exhibition also includes selections of oil paintings, drawings and etchings.
