"We are on a crusade to bring Hartley to life, and to inspire others to take pride in our collective American art experience," Maglaras said in a phone interview. "The combination of a great painter and a wonderful writer is not one you find all the time — and Hartley was both. He was not only an important painter, he was a fine poet and fine writer, an essayist, a diarist, and he left a legacy of written work." ~ Michael Maglaras, 217 Films
