Context: Pine Tree exemplifies the spiritual kinship with nature that informed Arthur Dove's paintings. He was not interested in literal representation. Instead, he looked to color, form, and line for ways to represent the essence or inner character of an object. Here the tree's undulating trunk and limbs command much of the canvas, alluding to forms and forces in nature. Rhythm and growth are also suggested by the concentric bands of color that are repeated throughout the composition.
