THE ARTIST PROJECT: David Salle on Marsden Hartley


“It's always a great mystery how a painter conveys feeling.” For artist David Salle, the source of emotion and meaning in Marsden Hartley’s depictions of America is puzzling. By examining the colours, forms, lines and subject matter of several of Hartley’s works, Salle hopes to understanding how such intensity of feeling can exist without sentimentality or narrative. This video was produced by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
