Alfred Stieglitz


With Reproductions of

All 559 Illustrations & Plates, Fully Indexed
Edited by Marianne Fulton Margolis

Only examples of such work as gives evidence of individuality and artistic worth,
regardless of school, or contains some exceptional feature of technical merit, or
such as exemplifies some treatment worthy of consideration, will find recognition
in these pages.

Alfred Stieglitz kept the promise he made in the first issue of Camera Work.
The fifty numbers of this famous and lavisiily iUustrated periodical, which he
edited and published between the years 1903 and 1917, contained some of the
finest examples of photograpliy and modernist art. The magazine chronicled
the introduction of modern Emopean art into America, publishing plates of
Rodin's and Matisse's drawings, for example, three years before the Armory
show. Camera Work was a major force in the fight to have piiotography accepted
as a medium of artistic expression. It del)ated not only the question of what
in photography could be admissible as art, but discussed theories of modern
art in general. Shaw wrote for it; it had the first published piece by Gertrude
Stein. Paul Strand, the noted photographer, reflected the opinion of many when
he said that "the whole development of photography has been given to the
world through Camera Work."

This volume reproduces chronologically all the photographs and other illustra-
tions (except for advertisements) that ever appeared in Camera Work. Here
are some of the finest and l)est-known works by American and European artists
and photographers —numerous photos by Echiard Steichen, ,\lfred Stieglitz, Paul
Strand, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Clarence White, Robert Demachy, Frank
Eugene, Jidia Margaret Cameron, Gertrude Kiisebier, Heinrich Kiihn, and
many others; paintings, drawings and sculpture by Van Gogh, C^czanne, Mary
Cassatt, Picasso, Matisse, John Marin, Rodin, Brancusi, and Nadelman, to
name just a famous few.

Marianne Margolis has written an extensive historical introduction about
Stieglitz and the magazine, and prepared three complete indexes of the pictures
by title, artist and sitter. Painstakingly acciuate and complete. Camera Work
is an indispensable reference work for libraries, museiuns, pictiue collectors
and dealers, and an important I)ook lor the art student and general reader
who wish to survey an ouisiauding period in tlie history of photography and
