Marsden Hartley - Portrait of a German Officer, 1914. He painted his most startlingly advanced abstractions during the first years of World War I while living in Berlin. They reflect not only his revulsion at the wartime destruction, but also his fascination with the energy and pageantry that accompanied the carnage. Portrait of a German Officer, painted in November 1914, shows Hartley's assimilation of both Cubism and German Expressionism (the coarse brushwork and the dramatic color).   �
