Modern Art and America: Alfred Stieglitz and His New York Galleries.
by [Modern Art] Greenough, Sarah et al.

Publisher Information:
Bulfinch Press, New York: 2001.

A Fine unread copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. Greenough, curator of photographs at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, arranged the exhibit there that focused on the role of photographer Alfred Stieglitz as a promoter of modern art in the United States. This book complements the exhibit, featuring essays by Greenough and other scholars on the New York galleries that Stieglitz operated as showcases for modern painting, sculpture, and photography during the first three decades of the 20th century. Greenough's book is successful in explaining the importance of the galleries, which made European art available to Americans while also revealing the talents of modern American painters, photographers, and sculptors. Most of the essays focus on the artists who exhibited in Stieglitz's galleries, e.g., Picasso, O'Keeffe, Matisse, and Strand. The research and documentation in this volume are exemplary, and the high-quality photographic reproductions are well chosen.
