An early American modernist, he is often considered the first American abstract painter.[1] Dove used a wide range of media, sometimes in unconventional combinations, to produce his abstractions and his abstract landscapes. Me and the Moon[2] from 1937 is a good example of an Arthur Dove abstract landscape and has been referred to as one of the culminating works of his career.[3] Dove did a series of experimental collage works in the 1920s.[4] He also experimented with techniques, combining paints like hand mixed oil or tempera over a wax emulsion as exemplified in Dove's 1938 painting Tanks, in the collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.[5]
