Join the PWP Book Club in September for a discussion of
Foursome: Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O’Keefe, Paul Strand, Rebecca Salsbury
by Carolyn Burke
A captivating, spirited account of the intense relationship among four artists whose strong personalities, passionate feelings, and aesthetic ideals drew them together, pulled them apart, and profoundly influenced the very shape of twentieth-century art.
“Who doesn’t love a good love triangle (or quadrant, in this case)?…a group portrait that reads like a who’s who of 20th century modernism.”
“[A] fascinating, well-told history by Carolyn Burke…”
“Carolyn Burke mines the correspondence of the foursome to reveal how each inspired, provoked, and unsettled the others while pursuing seminal modes of artistic innovation. The result is a surprising, illuminating portrait of four extraordinary figures.”
We will meet at the Metropolitan Opera Guild in September (just prior to our September PWP regularly scheduled monthly meeting).
