Summary

Summary

Based on the "key set" of Stieglitz photographs donated by Georgia O'Keeffe to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., in 1949 and 1980, this collection is a singular treasure. The selected plates demonstrate the evolution of Stieglitz's photographs and his understanding of the medium. Beginning with early works from the turn of the century, the book includes prints from Stieglitz's renowned series of portraits of O'Keeffe as well as later photographs of New York City and Lake George, notable for their eloquent simplicity. Following the section of seventy-three images are selected essays and letters by Stieglitz to friends and fellow artists such as Sherwood Anderson and Ansel Adams. This exquisitely printed volume will be welcomed by Stieglitz devotees and anyone who appreciates the fine art of photography.
