Steiglitz and His Artists: Matisse to O'Keeffe

This product is sold out.


This volume is the first catalogue of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's unparalleled Alfred Stieglitz collection: more than 400 hundred paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints made between the 1880s and the 1940s. After an illuminating introduction that traces the collection's formation and surprising d?nouement, 31 short essays serve as focused biographies of the dealer and each of the artists he cultivated and collected, demonstrating the intense and often intimate relationships that affected artistic direction, financial well-being (or its opposite), and social and professional prestige. These discussions are enriched by new scholarship, technical analysis, and archival research, and many works in the colleciton are published here for teh first time. Seen together in splendid color reproductions, they present a portrait of a supreme connoisseur - a man who acted as ''midwife'' in the creation of 21st-century art. Hardcover, 360 pages
