291 – Picasso-Braque Exhibition

Alfred Stieglitz American

Not on view

Stieglitz introduced Picasso's work to America in 1911. In the winter of 1915, he mounted a second exhibition of drawings and paintings by Picasso, this time adding the work of Braque and archaic Mexican pottery and carvings. This photograph documents the installation, which reiterated Stieglitz's strong advocacy of Cubism. The structure of the picture, like its subject, conveys Stieglitz's belief that the future of modern art, including photography, lay in abstraction.
