Alfred Stieglitz, photographs & writings by Alfred Stieglitz( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents seventy-three of American photographer Alfred Stieglitz's finest works. The photographs span Stieglitz's entire career; his early European studies from the 1880s and 1890s; his views of New York City from the turn of the century; the portraits of the many artists and writers he supported; the extended portraiture of Georgia O'Keefe; his photographs of clouds, the Equivalents; and his final studies of New York City and Lake George from the 1920s and 1930s. This book focuses on Stieglitz's central vision of photography ("search for objective truth and pure form") which increasingly was about "antiphotographs" or images that move beyond simple representation. Originally published as a complement to the exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in 1983

E.J. Bellocq : Storyville portraits : photographs from the New Orleans red-light district, circa 1912 by E. J Bellocq( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"E. J. Bellocq's photographs of Storyville prostitutes became famous in 1970, when they were shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Bellocq was more or less unknown before that, but with the show and the accompanying book, his mysterious, hauntingly beautiful portraits reached a wide audience, and Bellocq became a celebrated figure in the history of photography." "The Storyville portraits, which were made around 1912, constitute the only work of Bellocq's that is known to have survived. Eighty-nine glass plates were found some years after his death, and were eventually bought by the American photographer Lee Friedlander, who printed them for the show and book sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art. The book has long been out of print, and for this new edition Friedlander has expanded the number of images from thirty-four to fifty-two, and they have been reproduced in a larger format, the size of the glass plates themselves. The text from the original edition by John Szarkowski, the former director of photography at the Museum of Modern Art, is reprinted here. It is based on interviews Friedlander conducted with people who knew Bellocq - a fellow photographer, several musicians, a writer, and a former prostitute who was one of Bellocq's subjects."--Jacket

The divine comedy of Dante Alighieri by Dante Alighieri( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Divine Comedy' begins in a shadowed forest on Good Friday in the year 1300. It proceeds on a journey that, in its intense recreation of the depths and the heights of human experience, has become the key with which Western civilization has sought to unlock the mystery of its own identity. Allen Mandelbaum's astonishingly Dantean translation, which captures so much of the life of the original, renders whole for us the masterpiece that genius whom our greatest poets have recognized as a central model for all poets. This Everyman's edition -- containing in one volume all three cantos, 'Inferno, ' 'Purgatorio, ' and 'Paradiso' -- includes an introduction by Nobel Prize-winning poet Eugenio Montale, a chronology, notes, and a bibliography. Also included are forty-two drawings selected from Botticelli's marvelous late-fifteenth century series of illustrations." ***"An epic poem in which the poet describes his spiritual journey through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise -- guided first by the poet Virgil and then by his beloved Beatrice -- which results in a purification of his religious faith."
