The eccentric artist Albert Pinkham Ryder stylistically bridged the 19th and 20th centuries. He moved from Massachusetts to New York City in 1870, where he mainly painted seascapes and other images with mystical associations. His paintings do not present nature or real-life experiences. Instead, they show his inner visions and psychological turmoil. Ryder was admired by the first generation of American modernists, who welcomed him into the 1913 Armory Show as a likeminded artist.
