Description: Oscar Bluemner (1867-1938) is considered one of the most influential figures of the American modernist era. Impressed by European contemporaries such as Cezanne and Van Gogh, Bluemner's highly personal and boldly colored landscapes shocked the New York art scene in the early 1900s. With his revolutionary ideas and eloquent voice, Oscar Bluemner became part of a group of artists, including Georgia O'Keeffe, Arthur Dove, John Marin, and Marsden Hartley, among others, who essentially brought modernist art to life in America.
