    Maine Moderns: Drawings by Marsden Hartley and Carl Sprinchorn

    Sourced primarily from the museum’s Marsden Hartley Memorial Collection, this exhibition brings together figural drawings by artists who were longtime friends. Born in Lewiston, Hartley is recognized as an innovative and important figure in American Modernist painting. His drawings in this exhibition are from a series of later figural works, circa 1940, and are all from the same sketchbook. Sprinchorn was a Swedish-American artist who did much of his work in Maine. His drawings here include works that were in Hartley’s personal collection and several from a recent gift that appeared in Sprinchorn’s first New York show, where he met Hartley.
