JOHN MARIN (American / 1870-1953)

John Marin was an American architect. In 1905 Marin resolved to be a painter, and went to live in Paris, where he became friends with the etcher George Charles Aid. Many of John Marin's own etchings are of Parisian subjects; they show the influence of both Fauvism and Cubism, as well as that of Whistler from the previous generation. In 1910, still absorbing these heady influences, John Marin returned to the United States, where he played a key role in introducing the new modernist art movements. See: Zigrosser, The Complete Etchings of John Marin: Catalogue Raisonné, Philadelphia Museum of Art, 1969, with a list of errata in the Print Collector's Newsletter, 1970.
