Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few individuals have exerted as profound an influence on 20th-century American art and culture as Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946).This luxurious two-volume boxed set is the definitive catalogue of the Alfred Stieglitz Collection of Photographs at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, the most complete Stieglitz holding in existence, donated to the gallery by his widow, artist Georgia O'Keeffe.<P>Numbering 1,642 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 incomparable intimate portraits of O'Keeffe. Coinciding with a major traveling exhibition and providing complete scholarly apparatus and a chronology, this sumptuous volume demonstrates how Stieglitz absorbed the most advanced artistic concepts of his time into photography and transformed the medium forever.

Review:

"At the beginning of the 20th century, and for the next few decades, Alfred Stieglitz was arguably the most influential voice in American photography....This massive two-volume set...allows us to see more of Stieglitz's photographs than has ever been possible before. It includes 1,642 photographs, representing every mounted image in Stieglitz's possession when he died in 1946." Tom Toth, Christian Science Monitor (read the entire CSMonitor review)
