A fascinating biography of a revolutionary American artist ripe for rediscovery as a photographer and champion of other artists.
Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) was an enormously influential artist and nurturer of artists even though his accomplishments are often overshadowed by his role as Georgia O'Keeffe's husband. This new book from celebrated biography Phyllis Rose reconsiders Stieglitz as a revolutionary force in the history of American art.
