John Marin

1870 (Rutherford, N.J.) – 1953 (Cape Split, Maine)

Marin was introduced by Steichen to Stieglitz in Paris, a pivotal moment in his life. Following Stieglitz’s invitation, Marin exhibited in his New York gallery, and began a lifelong association in which the man who became a close friend also took care of all his business affairs. Strand was a neighbour in Maine and New Mexico, though they seem to have been united by their differences. O’Keeffe, married to Stieglitz, became in her own right a fond friend. Miller, having met them on his return to America, wrote about Marin and Stieglitz in ‘An Air-Conditioned Nightmare.’
