Stieglitz and His Artists. Matisse to O’Keeffe

Lisa Mintz Messinger

Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 2011


This volume is the first catalogue of the Metropolitan’s unparalleled Alfred Stieglitz Collection: more than four hundred paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints made between the 1880s and the 1940s. After an illuminating introduction that traces the collection’s formation and surprising dénouement, thirty-one short essays serve as focused biographies of the dealer and each of the artists he cultivated and collected, demonstrating the intense and often intimate relationships that affected artistic direction, financial well-being (or its opposite), and social and professional prestige. These discussions are enriched by new scholarship, technical analysis, and archival research, and many works in the colleciton are published here for teh first time. Seen together in splendid color reproductions, they present a portrait of a supreme connoisseur—a man who acted as “midwife” in the creation of twentieth-century art
