From Library Journal
Introducing modernism to the New York art world, photographer Alfred Stieglitz was impresario to such notable American artists and photographers as John Marin, Paul Strand, Charles Demuth, and Marsden Hartley. In 1916 Georgia O'Keeffe became the only woman admitted to this exclusive art circle. An intense love affair with her mentor ensued. Using unpublished letters and papers, and assisted by those who knew the subjects, Eisler portrays intimate details of the couple's relationship and all manner of liaisons with others. Their eroticism was often expressed in their vast artistic output. Eisler also wrote the introductory essay to Lovingly, Georgia (S. & S., 1990), which is a compilation of the correspondence between O'Keeffe and Anita Pollitzer. Though the details of their liaisons become repetitive, specialists will be interested in the newly researched material, and libraries with strong reader interest in O'Keeffe and Steiglitz will want this as well.
