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

26 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in English and held by 1,394 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

The Paris letters of Thomas Eakins by Thomas Eakins( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most revealing and interesting writings of American artist Thomas Eakins are the letters he sent to family and friends while he was a student in Paris between 1866 and 1870. This book presents all these letters in their entirety for the first time; in fact, this is the first edition of Eakins's correspondence from the period. Edited and annotated by Eakins authority William Innes Homer, this book provides a treasure trove of new information, revealing previously hidden facets of Eakins's personality, providing a much richer picture of his artistic development, and casting fresh light on his debated psychosexual makeup. The book is illustrated with the small, gemlike drawings Eakins included in his correspondence, as well as photographs and paintings. In these letters, Eakins speaks openly and frankly about human relationships, male companionship, marriage, and women. In vivid, charming, and sometimes comic detail, he describes his impressions of Paris--from the training he received in the studio of Jean-Leon Gerome to the museums, concerts, and popular entertainments that captured his imagination. And he discusses with great insight contemporary aesthetic and scientific theories, as well as such unexpected subjects as language structure, musical composition, and ice-skating technique. Also published here for the first time are the letters and notebook Eakins wrote in Spain following his Paris sojourn. This long-overdue volume provides an indispensable portrait of a great American artist as a young man

Heart's gate : letters between Marsden Hartley & Horace Traubel, 1906-1915 by Marsden Hartley( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These letters between Hartley and Traubel during the period 1906-1915 come from the age of Whitman's beloved comrades, the socialist pan-sexuality of Edward Carpenter, the high-mindedness of C.R. Ashbee's rural arts-and-crafts guilds, the 'romance' of Grieg, Victor Herbert, and Delius. It is still the Sentimental Epoch and the style of letters is extravagant. We see Marsden Hartley very early in his great and difficult passage as an artist in an America where men's feelings were inarticulate and often furtive
