Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alfred Stieglitz (1864and#8211;1946), Edward Steichen (1879and#8211;1973), and Paul Strand (1890and#8211;1976) are among the most famous photographers of the 20th century. This handsome volume showcases for the first time the Metropolitan Museumand#8217;s extraordinarily rich holdings of works by these diverse and groundbreaking masters.

A passionate advocate for photography and modern art promoted through his and#8220;Little Galleries of the Photo-Secessionand#8221; (also known as and#8220;291and#8221;) 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 Oand#8217;Keeffe (selected by Oand#8217;Keeffe herself for the Museum). Steichenand#8212;perhaps best known as a fashion photographer, celebrity portraitist, and MoMA curatorand#8212;was Stieglitzand#8217;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 Rodinand#8217;s Balzac are highlighted here. Marking a pivotal moment in the course of photography, the final double issue of Camera Work (1915and#8211;17) was devoted to the young Paul Strand, whose photographs from 1915 and 1916 treated three principal themesand#8212;movement in the city, abstractions, and street portraitsand#8212;and pioneered a shift from the soft-focus Pictorialist aesthetic to the straight approach and graphic power of an emerging modernism.and#160;Represented are Strandand#8217;s rare large platinum printsand#8212;most of them unique exhibition prints of images popularly known only as Camera Work photogravures.

The rarely exhibitedand#160;photographs gathered in Stieglitz, Steichen, Strand are among the crown jewels of the Metropolitanand#8217;s collection.
