9. ART: “Marsden Hartley: The German Paintings, 1913-1915”
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art hosts the first U.S. exhibition focused on gay American artist Hartley’s time in Berlin, when he was inspired by the city’s vibrant gay community and fell in love with a German military officer, Carl von Freyburg, who was killed early in World War I. Some of Hartley’s images memorialize his lost love, while other works are more abstract. The show opened early this month and continues through November 30; there are docent-led tours Friday and Sunday afternoons. LACMA is also offering two related exhibitions: “Expressionism in Germany and France: From Van Gogh to Kandinsky,” through September 14, and “Haunted Screens: German Cinema in the 1920s,” opening September 21.
