Gertrude Käsebier, Photographer

March 27–May 30, 1993

Gertrude Käsebier (1852-1934) was a key figure in the American fine-art photography movement at the turn of the century. Featured in the first and tenth issues (1903, 1905) of Alfred Stieglitz's influential Camera Work, Käsebier's work helped define the aesthetic of the Photo-Secession group. Her allegories, genre scenes, and landscapes were widely admired, as were the portraits she made in her Fifth Avenue studio. This exhibition of approximately forty prints, organized by The Museum of Modern Art, New York, surveys the range and variety of Käsebier's achievement, giving new emphasis to the work she made after 1910.
