Presents "Heinrich Kuehn And His American Circle: Alfred Stieglitz And Edward Steichen". A thoughtful glance at the auspicious beginnings of American art photography, triggered by Heinrich Kuehn. "Focusses on the luminous work of an important Austrian photographer. Heinrich Kuehn's early Pictorialist works were highly influential, and were exhibited at the Vienna Secession. Gradually, Kuehn incorporated the influence of his peers, and moved in the direction of Modernist photography. He was also among the first important photographers to create color images. This publication aims to situate Kuehn with regard to both the Viennese avant-garde and the international development of photography as an art form. Explores the close friendship among Kuehn and major photographers Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen, and showcases photographic prints and autochromes by Kuehn and other important photographers" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for photography book collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws. A scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with photographic plates. Some of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. .
