Betsy Lewis reviews the exhibition John Marin: Moderninsm at Midcentury at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, on view through January 8, 2012.

Lewis writes that exhibition "offers work from the final 20 years of Marin's life – a masculine vision of city, sea, and landscape and a profile of an artist who dabbled in and experimented with cubism and abstraction but never let an influence turn him into a follower."
