American Lens: Scenes from Alfred Stieglitz's New York Secession

Review
"I'm sure Bochner is a fine scholar and critic, but he also has that indispensable talent of storytellers: he gets us interested in what fascinates him through what he chooses to describe and narrate. So out of this collection of anecdotes, observations, critiques, forgotten or obscure historical moments that seem formed as responses to unknown interlocutors, emerges an entertaining book and, by the way, an absorbing and gallant portrait of the life and times and undervalued accomplishments of Alfred Stieglitz." -- William Kowinski, Books in Heat

Book Description
In An American Lens, Jay Bochner looks at a series of milestones in the development of the American avant-garde that capture a pivotal period in artistic consciousness. He focuses on the multiple roles of Alfred Stieglitz...

Book Review
Unless you're an avid fan of Cubist painting, you probably have never even heard of French painter Albert Gleizes (1881-1953), yet author Peter Brooke believes Gleizes to have been one of the 20th century's most important painters. Brooke's love and passionate respect of Gleizes's work has spurred him to write an intensely researched and well-written case on the magnitude of Gleizes's contributions to Cubism. In Albert Gleizes: For and Against the Twentieth Century are stories of the artist's life in France in the early 1900s, New York in the '20s, and his return to Europe in the '30s. Throughout are detailed analyses on the practice of Gleizes's painting, his movement from an early impressionistic style towards representational, and later nonrepresentational cubism. Gleizes's friends and fellow artists include such...

Book Description
Guillaume Apollinaire's only book on art, The Cubist Painters, was first published in 1913. This essential text in twentieth-century art presents the poet and critic's aesthetic meditations on nine painters: Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Jean Metzinger, Albert Gleizes, Marie Laurencin, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger, Francis Picabia, and Marcel Duchamp.

This collection of essays and reviews, written between 1905 and 1912, is a milestone in the history of art criticism, valued today as both a work of reference and a classic example of modernist creative writing.
In addition to a faithful and fluid translation of Apollinaire's text, Peter Read provides his own scholarly analysis of its importance in...

Debating American Modernism
Debra Bricker Balken

From Publishers Weekly
This handsome, complexly imagined catalogue for a traveling art exhibition of the same name proffers a new, organizing schism to early-century avant-garde artmaking: namely, a division between French arch-conceptualist Marcel Duchamp and red-blooded American photographer Alfred Stieglitz, who foresaw radically different aesthetic futures for American modernism, and whose personalities set the tone of the New York art world at the time. In two well-considered essays, with rich reproductions by luminaries such as Georgia O'Keefe, Arthur Dove, and Marsden Hartley (on the Stieglitz side), and Man Ray, Francis Picabia, and Jean Crotti (on Duchamp's side), the authors trace divergent responses to artistic polarities of the day-masculine/feminine, Nature/machine-and find in both camps a similar recourse to the...


Earthlight
Andre Breton

From Publishers Weekly
Breton (1896-1966), frequently dubbed the "pope" of surrealism, has had surprisingly few poems translated into English. Spanning 1919-1936, this volume covers his early work, his associations with Dada and the formative years of surrealism. Readers can at last become familiar with the artworks spawned from a great theoretical mind (Breton authored most of the surrealist manifestos). Poetry lovers familiar with the work of Apollinaire, Reverdy and others, might not find these poems particularly original on first reading. But viewed closely, Breton's ability to personify objects reveals an ironic chain of affinities not as farfetched as that of his contemporaries: "Open and closed the beautiful windows / Hung from the day's lips / The beautiful windows with only their nighties on." As in his classic novel, Nadja ,...
