John Marin


Becoming John Marin: Modernist at Work

October 27–January 20, 2019

San Antonio Museum of Art: Cowden Gallery 



Selected primarily from the outstanding collection of 290 drawings and watercolors donated to the Arkansas Arts Center by the artist’s daughter-in-law, Norma Marin, in 2013, the exhibition features rarely exhibited studio working drawings alongside finished pieces. Augmented by examples of Marin's drawings, watercolors, etchings, and oil paintings from the distinguished collection of San Antonio businessman and philanthropist Charles Butt, the exhibition spans nearly every aspect of Marin's long career, tracing his transformation from an avid young draftsman to the famed modernist who showed each year in Alfred Stieglitz’s succession of Manhattan galleries.
