Arthur Garfield Dove (August 2, 1880 – November 23, 1946) was an American artist. An to the front American modernist, he is often considered the first American abstract painter. Dove used a broad range of media, sometimes in well ahead combinations, to fabricate his abstractions and his abstract landscapes. Me and the Moon 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. Dove did a series of experimental collage works in the 1920s. He with experimented later than techniques, combining paints in the tune of hand contaminated oil or tempera exceeding a wax emulsion as exemplified in Dove's 1938 painting Tanks, in the accrual of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
