Brilliantly colored silkscreen, from Robert Indiana's 1990 portfolio: "The Hartley Elegies." The prints are an homage to American modernist painter Marsden Hartley with whom Indiana feels a strong affinity (both men grappled with their sexuality). Indiana's imagery is drawn from Hartley's 1914-15 "German Officer" paintings, created after the death of his dear friend, a young soldier named Karl von Freyburg, a devastating event in Hartley's life. In his distinctive hard-edged style, Indiana unites military insignia and geometric forms with references to Maine, America, war, and historical events to create symbolic portraits. (Catalogue is Robert Indiana: The Hartley Elegies, Bates College Museum of Art, Lewiston, Maine, 1991)
