Alfred Stieglitz's Photography of Georgia O'Keeffe

Independent scholar Lisa Kurzner discusses Alfred Stieglitz’s photographs of artist Georgia O’Keeffe. Educated in Berlin, Stieglitz studied engineering and photography before returning to the US at the turn of the century and opening the 291 gallery. He pioneered the art of photography, and single-handedly introduced America to the works of Picasso, Matisse, and Cezanne at the gallery. Stieglitz took more than 300 portraits of O’Keeffe between 1918 and 1937. Most of the more erotic poses would be in the first few years of their marriage.

    ..interesting info but would have preferred a more conversational tone//presentation rather than reading, sometimes stumbling through a prepared script…thanks

    Poorly done presentation. I should have loved it being a Stieglitz fan. Lisa should have let the photography talk instead of her banal commentary combined with her amateur slide show. It’s about the photography Lisa!

    The speaker seems to take the joy out of the art and it’s creator,

    Lisa is not a good speaker, I found it hard to listen to her so I kept scooting ahead. But loved the photographs and paintings.
