Modernism and the Feminine Voice: O'Keefe and the Women of the Stieglitz Circle.

Berkeley: University of California Press, 2007. First Printing of the First Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. This opulently illustrated book reveals how Alfred Stieglitz's search for a pure, essential “woman in art” led him to several women before his vision found ultimate expression in Georgia O’Keeffe, whom Stieglitz portrayed as the shining, liberated feminine figure of his movement. Modernism and the Feminine Voice explores a group of extraordinary women who developed their voices through an affiliation with the Stieglitz circle—Gertrude Käsebier, Pamela Colman Smith, Anne Brigman, and Katharine Nash Rhoades—and shows how these artists helped define the woman modernist through their lives and their individual photographs and paintings. Profoundly revising Stieglitz's story of the woman modernist as embodied in the person and imagery of Georgia O'Keeffe, this pioneering book demonstrates that O’Keeffe was one voice among several which deserve recognition as the vanguard of American modernism. Kathleen Pyne adds fascinating but overlooked material to the history of modernism in New York with this book Fully illustrated in color and black & white. Item #25743
