Title Modernism and the feminine voice

Sub-Title O'Keeffe and the women of the Stieglitz circle



Description / Abstract 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.
