Marsden Hartley - Regionalist
Near the end of his life, after being away from home for the majority of his life (whether in New York or another city or continent), Hartley returned to Maine. He desired to portray the lives of local, common Americans. He became a member of the Regionalists: "artists of the early 20th century who attempted to represent a distinctly "American art."

Marsden Hartley - nature
Hartley believed in the ability to form a powerful emotional connection with nature, and attempted to render such in his work. Some of his early work seems to have an impressionist influence because Hartley painted in a way that he thought best conveyed his experience of being in the Maine mountains. When put on canvas his emotions are characterized through quick brushstrokes.

Marsden Hartley - style
While one could call him a regionalist, Hartley did not adhere to any one artistic style or movement. Like other modernists such as Picasso, Hartley searched for techniques that would set them apart from the masses.
