"The day I stumbled across this building I couldn’t help but think of Marsden Hartley. He was a restless soul, and the Taos/Santa Fe art colony didn’t move him enough to stay. For five years after his sojourn in New Mexico, he continued to paint the area, even while in Berlin, over five thousand miles away.
Hartley moved to Santa Fe for a brief time in 1918 or 1919. The New Mexico Museum of Art gave him the opportunity to paint in the Palace of the Governor’s courtyard before he returned to New York. Hartley was originally summoned to New Mexico by Mabel Dodge who was a friend of Alfred Stieglitz. Hartley was considered an American Modernist, along with Arthur Dove and John Marian. Like Dove and Marian, abstract sections of color was Hartley’s way of interrupting New Mexico’s landscape and culture. He later told Stieglitz that New Mexico was the perfect place to regain his body and soul." - Ivan Barnett
