He then spent 2 years in France where he became friends with Alfred Maurer and met Alfred Stieglitz. Dove had a one man show at Stieglitz's Gallery 291 in 1912. He moved back to Geneva, NY in 1932 and remained there until 1938.
Throughout his forty-year career, Arthur Dove maintained a profound love of color and form, which he acquired during his early studies with the French Fauves who used vivid, undiluted color in their work. He also maintained a love of nature in his subject matter, even as he became one of the first American artists to break away from representational art toward abstract paintings without clearly recognizable subjects.
