Alfred Stieglitz: In-Sight Evenings: Looking Deeper and Differently at the Arthur M. Sackler Museum @ 485 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138
In 1969 the Fogg Museum received a selection of photogravures by the legendary impresario of American modernism, Alfred Stieglitz (1864–1946). Drawn from the artist’s first portfolio of his own work, Picturesque Bits of New York and Other Studies (1897), the images signaled a critical sea change in Stieglitz’s approach to the fine art of photography, while their acquisition marked the advent of a new direction in collecting for Harvard’s art museums.
This In-Sight Evenings series features a talk by Deborah Martin Kao, Chief Curator; Richard L. Menschel Curator of Photography; Acting Head, Division of Modern and Contemporary Art, Harvard Art Museums on Stieglitz and his seminal work.
