Alfred Stieglitz Photos On View – Brief Article
Legendary photographer and artist Alfred Stieglitz is the subject of a new traveling exhibit organized by the George Eastman House international Museum of Photography and Film in Rochester, N.Y., and currently on view at the Norton Museum of Art until Nov. 4, 2001. Entitled “The Photography of Alfred Stieglitz: Georgia O’Keeffe’s Enduring Legacy,” the exhibit includes 110 key works by Stieglitz from the 1890s to 1935: early European work, Lake George, New York City, portraits, including famed portraits of his wife, Georgia O’Keeffe, and facsimiles of early autochromes and black and white lantern slides.
The exhibit at the Norton marks the first time these works have been shown outside the George Eastman House, which, during the 1970s and early 1980s received a gift of photographs by Stieglitz from his wife, O’Keeffe. At her request, the Stieglitz gift was not to be shown outside this venue. However, O’Keeffe’s restrictions have now been lifted. “We feel it is extraordinary that O’Keeffe was able to save and assemble his best works, and that a larger audience will now have access to them,” said Neil Watson of the Norton.
