San Antonio Museum of Art will present "Becoming John Marin: Modernist at Work"
"Becoming John Marin: Modernist at Work" explores the artistic transformation of American modernist John Marin. Reuniting many of Marin’s sketches and drawings with his etchings, paintings, and watercolors, the exhibition demonstrates how his style and approach evolved across different media and throughout his career.
"Becoming John Marin" features approximately 80 works from the 290-work collection of the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock, donated by the artist’s daughter-in-law, Norma Marin, in 2013 and recently conserved. Along with the Arkansas Arts Center collection, the exhibition is augmented by examples of Marin’s drawings, watercolors, engravings, and oil paintings drawn from the distinguished private collection of San Antonio philanthropist and businessman Charles Butt.
