Stieglitz and His Artists: Matisse to O'Keeffe - Lisa Mintz Messinger

The Steins were not the only ones with an eye for modern art. The photographer Alfred Stieglitz, after hearing Leo Stein lecture on Picasso, showed the artist’s work in America. In Stieglitz and His Artists (Yale Univ., $65), Lisa Mintz Messinger presents work by European and American artists whose talent Stieglitz was among the first on this side of the Atlantic to recognize; he showed them in his Gallery 291 and publicized them in his short-lived magazine, Camera Work. Messinger’s catalog pairs paintings with portraits of the artists, and accompanying text describes their relationships with Stieglitz.
