Gertrude Käsebier: The Complexity of Light and Shade

Friday, June 28, 2013 at 12:00pm to 5:00pm

Old College Hall, Main Gallery Old College Hall, University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19711, USA

Käsebier (1852-1934) was among the most important American pictorialist photographers and a founding member of Alfred Stieglitz's Photo-Secession. Her moody portraits and her expressive studies of mothers and children won critical acclaim in the U.S. and abroad, fetching record prices for artistic photography at the turn of the twentieth century. Alfred Stieglitz championed her work, devoting the first issue of his deluxe journal Camera Work to her photographs in 1903 and featuring her in his newly opened Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession in 1905. Famed British modernist photographer Alvin Langdon Coburn came to study with her in New York. In France in 1905, she stayed with Edouard Steichen and visited the studio of Auguste Rodin, befriending the great sculptor and making an important series of photographs of him. This exhibition presents a range of her works, from family photographs to formal portraits to scenes of Newfoundland. A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition curated by Stephen Petersen.
