#GeorgiaOKeeffe is popularly known for her large-scale paintings of flowers from the 1920s and 1930s. Flowers as a theme were considered a “feminine” subject in the 19th and early 20th century, but no one had ever painted them like her. As soon as she began to exhibit such imagery, both male and female critics interpreted her art as having strong sexual and anatomical connotations, claiming her images were expressions of an essential and uniquely feminine artistic sensibility. O’Keeffe spent years denying these eroticized readings of her paintings as well as the qualification of her identity as an artist with the word woman. #okeeffemodern

#AlfredStieglitz was born on this day in 1864. In addition to his career as a photographer, Stieglitz was an active promoter of modern art, presenting work at his gallery by painters such as Arthur Dove, John Marin, and Georgia O’Keeffe, whom he married in 1924. Arnold Newman captured this portrait of Stieglitz and O'Keeffe at his gallery in 1944.

Concerning Alfred Stieglitz and me. TBM? Me and Stieglitz's Georgia O'Keeffe: A Portrait, Hands and Thimble, 1919. Taken 1993. Perhaps the most perfect photographic object I've ever had the privilege of holding in my hands. #alfredstieglitz @aipadphoto @ydessahendeles @photographmag #platinumpalladium @ngadc

Now on view, "Charles Sheeler from Doylestown to Detroit" and "Alfred Stieglitz and Modern America" celebrate two foundational figures of the MFA's #photography collection.

Georgia O’Keeffe by Alfred Stieglitz, 1918 Too #AlfredStieglitz #Georgia O’Keeffe, #1918 #TooHuman

Alfred Stieglitz (1864–1946) /
Portrait of Georgia, No.1, 1923 /
Image and sheet, 4x5 inches /
gelatin silver contact print, flush–mounted on card, mounted on larger card inscribed “Portrait of O'Keeffe by Stieglitz / given to Dorothy Norman by Dona Luisa / Coomaraswamy / after A.S.'s death / in 1946” in pencil by Dorothy Norman on affixed original mount fragments and credited, titled and dated 'printed c. 1920' on affixed museum label (secondary mount, verso). In 1916, #AlfredStieglitz and #GeorgiaOKeeffe embarked upon a personal and professional collaboration that resulted in an era-defining relationship. Stieglitz became O’Keeffe’s mentor and benefactor while she thrived in the role of his muse and confidant. The ensuing period, one of shared passion and mutual influence, was the most prolific, innovative and visionary period for both artists.
Made in 1923 during the height of their love affair, and the year before they wed, Portrait of Georgia, No. 1 is poetically linked to Portrait of Georgia No. 2 and No. 3, both of which are photographs of clouds from his Songs of the Sky series. Stieglitz himself indicated that the images of clouds paralleled his inner state; the inclusion of this portrait further reveals his devotion. Completely smitten, Stieglitz wrote that, “O’Keeffe is a constant source of wonder to me, like Nature itself.” The present lot was a gift by the artist to philosopher and art historian Ananda K. Coomaraswamy, then curator of Indian and Islamic art at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts (and one of my absolute favorite authors!) Sarah Greenough’s two volume book, Alfred Stieglitz: The Key Set locates two additional prints of this image; one in The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, the other in the Kemper Museum in Kansas City. #CHRISTIESPHOTOGRAPHS #Photography @christiesinc PORTRAIT OF A COLLECTION: THE JOHN M.

New embroidery pattern I'm hopefully going to start stitching soon! It's based off of a 1919 photo of Georgia O'Keefe by Alfred Stieglitz. 🌸

i don't know what it is about the texas panhandle but since i've been back, it's been so peaceful. i used to hate it, this small boring town. but it comes with so many memories. some good, some bad, some that have changed me. it's kind of sad thinking about my parents selling their house. these warm summer nights and evening skies will always be one of my favorites. on another note, i took this yesterday, and i was channeling my inner #stieglitz.

“I do wonder sometimes — often — very often — what that something really is which seems to exist between us — Am I what you feel? — I know you are what I feel you are.”
