Albert Pinkham Ryder (1847-1917) wrote, “The new is not revealed to those whose eyes are fastened in worship on the old. The artist of to-day must work with his face turned toward the dawn, steadfastly believing that his dream will come true…” Yet Ryder himself became a favorite of subsequent trailblazers like Jackson Pollock, Marsden Hartley, and Robert Rauschenberg, and Ryder continues to influence artists today.
