Robert Indiana (1928-2018) had a fascination with the life and work of Marsden Hartley (1877-1943). They had never met. Hartley had a connection to Maine (he was born there in 1877, and summered on Vinylhaven in 1938. Marsden Hartley's lifestyle and association with Gertude Stein's avant- garde circle in Paris was of great interest to Indiana.
"I live on Vinalhaven, an island off the coast of Maine," said Robert Indiana. "I first went to the island in 1969, but when I moved there permanently from New York, in 1978, I learned Hartley also had lived there for one summer 40 years earlier.
"As soon as I found that out, I thought, well, one day I'll have to deal with the coincidence. And it was the Hartley retrospective at the Whitney Museum in New York City that really triggered, because the catalog that accompanied the show gave me more information about Marsden Hartley than I ever knew before."
