Alfred Stieglitz and the American avant-garde by William Innes Homer( Book )

6 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the twenty years before World War I, one man almost single-handedly changed the course of American art and photography. That man was Alfred Stieglitz--master photographer, gallery proprietor, publisher, raconteur, philosopher, and critic. This book treats in detail the interaction of Stieglitz and his colleagues, the relationship between European and early American abstract painting, the friendships and travels of the American modernists, the Armory Show and its aftermath, and finally the cultural and social forces that led Stieglitz to close his famous gallery, "291", and to stop publishing his influential magazine, Camera Work
Alfred Stieglitz : an American seer by Dorothy Norman( Book )

9 editions published between 1973 and 1990 in English and German and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book [the author] draws upon her close association with Stieglitz and upon his own words to create a warm portrait of the focal figure of the modern art movement in America. The many direct quotations preserve in written form the bold, subtle nature of Stieglitz's speech and the brilliance of his parables and anecdotes. The 80 reproductions of Stieglitz's photographs constitute the largest selection ever published. Many are reproduced here for the first time. They powerfully attest to the purity of his vision. Ninety illustrations of a documentary nature, including additional Stieglitz photographs and work by artists he showed, are also reproduced--Jacket

Camera work : a pictorial guide, with reproductions of all 559 illustrations and plates, fully indexed by Alfred STIEGLITZ( Book )

12 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Only examples of such work as gives evidence of individuality and artistic worth, regardless of school, or contains some exceptional feature of technical merit, or such as exemplifies some treatment worthy of consideration, will find recognition in these pages." Alfred Stieglitz kept the promise he made in the first issue of Camera Work. The fifty numbers of this famous and lavishly illustrated periodical, which he edited and published between the years 1903 and 1917, contained some of the finest examples of photography and modernist art. The magazine chronicled the introduction of modern European art into America and was a major force in the fight to have photography accepted as a medium of artistic expression. This volume reproduces chronologically all the photographs and other illustrations (except for advertisements) that ever appeared in Camera Work. Marianne Margolis has written an extensive historical introduction about Stieglitz and the magazine, and prepared three complete indexes of the pictures by title, artist and sitter.--From publisher description

Two lives : Georgia O'Keeffe & Alfred Stieglitz : a conversation in paintings and photographs by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photography historian Belinda Rathbone, the author of a forthcoming biography of the American photographer Walker Evans, looks at the couple's life together from the perspective of Stieglitz who, at the age of fifty-two, was thoroughly rejuvenated when Georgia entered his life. Art historian Elizabeth Hutton Turner examines the relationship from O'Keeffe's point of view. She portrays how a gifted but inexperienced artist came into Stieglitz's world at the age of twenty-nine and in a short space of time evolved from apprentice to collaborator and finally to a leading artist in her own right. As Associate Curator at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., Dr. Turner organized the traveling exhibition that accompanies this book." "Two Lives reproduces the work of both artists with the stunning quality and fidelity for which Callaway books are known. Together, the reproductions and the three essays form a unique account of two lives and two artists."--Jacket

Alfred Stieglitz's Camera notes by Christian A Peterson( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Camera Notes was the most significant American photographic periodical of its time. Published quarterly by the Camera Club of New York and edited by Alfred Stieglitz, the fountainhead of American Art Photography, it represented a critical phase in the campaign to legitimize the photo image as an artistic pursuit. Throughout most of its six-year life (1897-1903) the publication included thoughtful articles on photography as fine art as well as hundreds of halftone images and stunning high-quality photogravures. While much has been written on Stieglitz's life and many endeavors, including his later publication Camera Work, little attention has been given to Camera Notes." "This striking volume details the history of Camera Notes and its influence on the photographic world. It reproduces in their original tones all 91 of the beautiful photogravures that appeared during the journal's life. In addition, it contains a fully illustrated index of the more than 250 halftones that appeared on its pages."--Jacket
Debating American modernism : Stieglitz, Duchamp, and the New York avant-garde by Debra Bricker Balken( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the crossfire between Marcel Duchamp and Alfred Stieglitz and their respective circles there emerged what Debra Bricker Balken calls "a critical reformulation of modernism, one that imprinted the direction of subsequent American art." Balken traces the fascinating threads of the debate between Duchamp and Stieglitz and their respective camps through the 1910s and '20s, and also addresses the sexualized imagery that appears in nearly all of these artists' works, a phenomenon that ironically unifies the two seemingly opposed factions. Jay Bochner provides an absorbing analysis of the artists' respective violations of American expectations about art." "Debating American Modernism includes reproductions of work by artists from both factions, from Arthur Dove, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Paul Strand to Man Ray, Francis Picabia, and Marsden Hartley, as well as by a group who melded the concerns of each, among them, Charles Demuth, Charles Sheeler, John Storrs, and Stuart Davis."--Jacket

Alfred Stieglitz by Alfred Stieglitz( Book )

12 editions published in 1989 in 3 languages and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stieglitz described himself as an American. His work began to attract attention in the late eighties, and he became a powerful, often domineering, influence on photography and art. His photographs of things and people-of sun and cloud shapes-become equivalents of a deeply critical yet affirmative inquiry into contemporary life

The model wife by Arthur Ollman( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With provocative photographs by some of the best-known photographers of the past century, The Model Wife is a striking and original book about the place where marriage and photography converge. Friends, lovers, confidantes, collaborators -- the multifaceted relationship between husband and wife takes on another dimension when the couple are also artist and muse. In The Model Wife, Arthur Ollman explores the imagery and photographic history of nine twentieth-century photographers who portrayed their wives over a period of years. He delves into issues of marriage itself and the powerful influences that such a partnership can have on artistic production. Comparisons between the couples and the resulting photographs enrich this discussion."--
