"In 1924, forty-one years after he was introduced to photography as an engineering student in Berlin, Alfred Stieglitz gathered together a group of his photographs and presented them to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The bequest - the first group of photographs by one artist to enter an American museum - was a landmark in the history of photography and a triumph for Stieglitz, who had worked throughout his life for acceptance of photography as an art form. In 1950, after his death, Georgia O'Keeffe, with the intention of matching the caliber of those Stieglitz has chosen, added forty-two more prints so that the collection would include the entire chronological range of this work. This superb volume, originally published in 1965, represents the entire classic collection, which is considered the finest, most highly distilled, and most personal collection of Stieglitz work..."
