Seated Man with Wide Collar

ca. 1938-1941
Marsden Hartley, American, (Lewiston, ME, January 4, 1877 - September 2, 1943, Ellsworth, ME)

This sketch and the previous two (1955.1.45 and 1955.1.46) are done with black crayon, which Hartley increasingly favored for landscape and figure drawings during the last seven years of his life. While the typical artist's crayon of this type is a lithographic crayon that he used when making his two series of lithographs (1923 and 1933-34), he said in a 1937 letter that the he was doing "some wonderful drawings which are really paintings with the grease crayons one marks packages with." Hartley's handling of the medium throughout this example exploits the rich blackness of the tool.
