Few individuals have exerted as profound an influence on 20th-century American art and culture as Alfred Stieglitz (1846-1964). This two-volume boxed set is the catalogue of the Alfred Stieglitz Collection of Photographs at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, the most complete Stieglitz holding in the world, donated to the gallery by his widow, the artist Georgia O'Keeffe. Numbering 1642 photographs, the collection represents the full range of the master photographer's work - from early studies made in Europe to views of the majestic New York skyline to intimate portraits of O'Keeffe. Coinciding with a travelling exhibition and providing complete scholarly apparatus and a chronology, these volumes demonstrate how Stieglitz absorbed the advanced artistic concepts of his time into photography and transformed the medium.

Photographer, writer, publisher, and curator Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) was a visionary, far ahead of his time. Around the turn of the 20th century he founded the Photo-Secession, a progressive movement concerned with advancing the creative possibilities of photography, and by 1903 began publishing "Camera Work", an avant-garde magazine devoted to voicing the ideas, both in images and words, of the Photo-Secession. "Camera Work" was the first photo journal whose focus was visual, rather than technical, and its illustrations were of the highest quality hand-pulled photogravure printed on Japanese tissue. This book brings together a broad selection from the journal's 50 issues.

Iconic images of the city from one of the masters of photography collected for the first time in a charming homage to lost New York. Here is "The City of Ambition"--the New York that inspires dreams, the Gotham of the early twentieth century, when grand skyscrapers sprouted everywhere amid columns of steam. Alfred Stieglitz--the legendary art impresario and husband of Georgia O'Keeffe--forged a paean to his native city, finding inspiration on the streets, from the harbor ferry, and in the high-rise views. In her essay, respected art historian Bonnie Yochelson places Stieglitz's work within the context of the burgeoning commercial world around him and other artists of the period. Stieglitz witnessed a key period in New York's history when the city suddenly transformed into a modern metropolis. As a child, he grew up in an upper Fifth Avenue brownstone still surrounded by empty lots and dirt roads. Naturally, he was fascinated by the monumental buildings rising around him, and you can sense his wonder in these images. Among the classic buildings he so artfully captured here are the (now demolished) Madison Square Gardens, the Flatiron, Rockefeller Center, the Waldorf Astoria, the Chrysler, and the Empire State. His images formed archetypes that would go on to shape the imagination of generations. This intimate volume makes for a beautiful souvenir of timeless New York, a city of striving and dreaming.

Alfred Stieglitz: A Legacy of Light
by Ms. Katherine Hoffman
Hardcover from Yale University Press
ISBN: 0300134452
Availability: Usually ships in 24 hoursIn Stieglitz: A Beginning Light, Katherine Hoffman presented an account of the early years of the career of Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) and of his European roots. Now, she offers a compelling portrait of his life and art from 1915 to 1946, focusing on his American works, issues of identity, and the rise of modernism in America.
Hoffman explores Stieglitz's roles as photographer, editor, writer, and gallery director; how they intersected with his personal life -- including his marriage to artist Georgia O'Keeffe -- and his place in the cultural milieu of the 20th century. Excerpts from previously unpublished correspondence between Stieglitz and O'Keeffe reveal the fervor and complexity of their relationship as well as his passion for photography and modern art and his ongoing struggle to have photography recognized as an established artistic medium. These letters, along with his work as an editor and writer of short articles, illuminate Stieglitz's literary side, thus giving a new perspective on his total oeuvre.
Generously illustrated with 300 images, this intriguing, beautifully written book separates the photographer's true personality from the myths surrounding him and highlights his lasting legacy: the works he left behind.

Alfred Stieglitz (1864-46) is one of the most revered artists in the history of the photographic medium. Via his influential journal "Camera Work", which he edited and published from 1903 to 1917, and his galleries 291, The Intimate Gallery and An American Place, he championed, published and exhibited much of the best art, European and American, of the period. He also created his own outstanding body of photographic work and it is this which has firmly established his reputation as one of the great 20th-century artists.

Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946), Edward Steichen (1879-1973), and Paul Strand (1890-1976) are among the most famous photographers of the 20th century. This handsome volume showcases for the first time the Metropolitan Museum's extraordinarily rich holdings of works by these diverse and groundbreaking masters.

A passionate advocate for photography and modern art promoted through his "Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession" (also known as "291") and his journal Camera Work, Stieglitz was also a photographer of supreme accomplishment. Featured works by Stieglitz include portraits, landscapes, city views, and cloud studies, along with photographs from his composite portrait of Georgia O'Keeffe (selected by O'Keeffe herself for the Museum). Steichen--perhaps best known as a fashion photographer, celebrity portraitist, and MoMA curator--was Stieglitz's man in Paris, gallery collaborator, and most talented exemplar of Photo-Secessionist photography. His three large variant prints of The Flatiron and his moonlit photographs of Rodin's Balzac are highlighted here. Marking a pivotal moment in the course of photography, the final double issue of Camera Work (1915-17) was devoted to the young Paul Strand, whose photographs from 1915 and 1916 treated three principal themes--movement in the city, abstractions, and street portraits--and pioneered a shift from the soft-focus Pictorialist aesthetic to the straight approach and graphic power of an emerging modernism. Represented are Strand's rare large platinum prints--most of them unique exhibition prints of images popularly known only as Camera Work photogravures.

The rarely exhibited photographs gathered in Stieglitz, Steichen, Strand are among the crown jewels of the Metropolitan's collection.

Availability: Usually ships in 24 hours

This beautifully written book weaves together biographical, historical, and artistic strands to present a colorful tapestry of the photographer Alfred Stieglitz's (1864-1946) early life and work. Generously illustrated, the volume includes photographs Stieglitz took in Europe (some rarely seen), his first works in the United States, and Katherine Hoffman's new photographs of important sites in young Stieglitz's life. The book is the first to look closely at the photographer's formative years and photographic works before 1917.

Although Stieglitz was born in New Jersey, his ancestry lay in Germany, where he spent some of his high school and university years. Stieglitz: A Beginning Light traces the lasting influences of European culture on his work, as well as the impact of American democratic traditions. The book also recounts his tireless and often lonely efforts as a young photographer, editor, writer, and gallery director to gain recognition for the Modernist cause and for photography as a fine art.

Alfred Stieglitz: A Biography
by Richard Whelan
Paperback from Da Capo Pr
ISBN: 0306807947

Alfred Stieglitz is perhaps best known for his spiritually rich photographs of his surroundings, family, friends, and the many women he loved, including his second wife, painter Georgia O'Keeffe. But his influence went beyond his own individual artistry. At his gallery "291" he presented the first American exhibitions of Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Rousseau. His militant advocacy of photography as art won widespread acclaim for the medium. By detailing his many pursuits and passions, his turbulent relationships and pioneering work, this biography provides a chronicle and contribution to the history of American art.
