II, Tucson, Arizona, 1970, no. 47.23, p. 754, illustrated Catalogue Note Movement: Racing Sea waspainted during the last decade of John Marin's life whilehe took residence in Cape Split, Maine.It is one among a series of nine oil paintings from the period, a grouping aptly titled Movements thatwas exhibited in a retrospective at An American Place in 1947. Marin recorded in his journals that year, \“Using paint as paint is different from using paint to paint a picture. I\’m calling my pictures this year \‘Movements in Paint\’ and not movements of boat, sea, or sky, because in these new paintings, although I use objects, I am representing paint first of all, and not the motif primarily\” (as quoted in Mac Kinley Helm, John Marin, Boston, Massachusetts, 1948, p. 101). While this decade was ostensibly marked by grief, following the death ofhis wife and later his mentor Alfred Stieglitz, Marin approached his work with renewed enthusiasm and vigor. In the catalogue for Kennedy Galleries\’ 1982 exhibition of the artist\’s seascapes,which includedMovement: Racing Sea, John I.H. Baur noted, \“As the 1940s wore on Marin\’s oils began to change—subtly at first, then more radically.\” He continued, \“...Marin employed his cubism with a new freedom, using it to reinforce the dynamic expressionism of the compositions. No longer do the grid lines restrain the wildness of the waves; instead they echo their action and underline their movement\” (as quoted in Kennedy Galleries, John Marin and the Sea, New York, 1982, n.p.). We see this grid line technique employed in Movement: Racing Sea. The composition is delineated by horizontal linesthat establish an energetic sea and calm sky. The sky is marked by a cobalt blue border, which frames gray feathered clouds. This border defines the picture plane and is echoed along all four sides of the work. The sea and sky are suspended within this framework though not confined to the flat surface. As such, the landscape remains wildly in motion. The horizon line is marked by a thin strip of land, beneath it rolling waves in greenthat endure the shifting sea. These energetic brushstrokes are typical of Marin\’s works from the period and the Movement series captures his mastery of color and gesture.
