Alfred Stieglitz (American, 1864 - 1946)
Alfred Stieglitz's childhood passed in big houses full of musicians, artists and writers who were hosted by his generous and liberal minded parents. His New York gallery 291 was the first in the States to exhibit work by Matisse, Henri Rousseau, Picasso, Braque and Brancusi among others. The magazines he published helped several generations of American artists find a direction in their work. He was a leader of the international Pictorialist group. As a photographer Stieglitz was a passionate yet careful observer who always tried to hit 'the point beyond the centre'; to comprehend the intimate nature of his subjects.
