19 Oct-16 Jan 2005.The city of New Yorks development during the early 20th century favoured an intellectual and artistic boom that spread throughout the world. Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946), a charismatic figure, was to play a central part in the elaboration of American modern art. His gallery, on Fifth Avenue, at first devoted to photography, became the centre of the European avant-garde from 1908 onwards exhibiting drawings by Rodin, Czanne, Picasso and Matisse. The 1913 Armory Show, the first major contemporary art fair in the United States, soon attracted artists from overseas, such as Picabia and Duchamps propelling forward artistic life in New York. Though Stieglitz and his group no longer held centre stage they went on creating events, defending Picasso, Brancusi, and also Negro art and Dada. After the first world war, Stieglitz was to indulge more intensively his passion, photography, while continuing to defend a group of painters, including Arthur Dove, Georgia O'Keeffe and Charles Demuth intent on creating a typically American modern art. The Alfred Stieglitz and His Circle at the Muse dOrsay is the first exhibition of Stieglitz and his circle's activities in Paris and the first time that the work of this major photographer gets a comprehensive showing.
Address Muse dOrsay.
