About This Item

Designed by our in-house team, this mug captures the bold colors of Marsden Hartley's Arrangement—Hieroglyphics (Painting No. 2), currently on display as part of the MFA's "Making Modern" exhibition.

While living as an expatriate in Berlin between 1913 and 1915, Hartley began to produce abstract modernist paintings. These groundbreaking works included a group of Native American–themed compositions that he called his Amerika series; Arrangement—Hieroglyphics (Painting No. 2) is one of this group. Filled with bright and vivid colors, Arrangement—Hieroglyphics reflects Hartley’s strong, even optimistic prewar vision.
