then comes expression
loose and taut
When viewing a watercolor by modernist painter John Marin you are likely to hear
music with every stroke or mark of the brush on the paper.
Marin developed a bold new way to use watercolor paint
and capture the landscape around him.
He made the medium contemporary and very American.
This great and very informative book, (covers his life and times,
his watercolor technique and even the way he framed his work)
accompanies the current show at the Art Institute of Chicago.
