Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Packed with personal revelations, ths enthralling dual portrait of the painter and the photographer demythologizes the American art world's iconic couple. Photos.
Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.

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 Using unpublished letters and papers, and assisted by those who knew the subjects, Eisler portrays intimate details of the couple's relationship and all manner of liaisons with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.

Format: Paperback
An amazing insight into the lives of two of America's great artists of this century. Thanks to the fine research of the author and the fact that so many important people in the lives of O'Keeffe and Stieglitz corresponded by letter and, more importantly, saved the letters, we are able to share many moments in their personal and professional lives in NYC, at Lake George and in New Mexico. Their psychological development over time and the effect of that on their work and their relationship is fairly mind boggling. One problem, the author never really explains what it is about Stieglitz that makes O'Keeffe love him and keeps her tied to him.

I got this book as a gift. It is a little intimidating in size but is a fascinating look at the extraordinary flawed lives of these two individuals. It sounds cliche but it is very hard to put down. In part I think it has such an "inside" nature to it due to the prolific letter writers involved. Everyone wrote, and luckily seemed to save all their correspondence. The look at the New York Art world in the 1920's is such a bonus.
A great book!

The best on the subject of these two American artists.Their names are slowly recessing into history.Yet,their artwork in photography and paintings is still fascinating.The couple knew the best of the art world.I wished the had written down what the knew of the Lindbergh kidnapping caper.A hot topic,among their art associates.Names like,Witter Bynner and Alfred Barnes.But also among literary figures,like Theodore Dreiser and Eugene O'Neill.Or among actors too,like the Providencetown Players,both Katharine Cornell and Ruth Hale.On page 409,even mentions Lillie Bliss,the wealthy art patron and co-founder of the NYC Modern Museum of Art.The book does not mention that she was the daughter of Cornelius Newton Bliss,the wealthy textile manufacturer,who was business partners with Matthew Borden.I'm not sure how closely related Matthew Borden was to Lizzie and Emma Borden.Lillie Bliss passed away in March of 1931.Just before the Lindbergh kidnapping,one year later.And John Quinn the art lawyer,who also helped launch the 1913 Armory Show,had passed away in 1925.Both could have heard the Lindbergh kidnapping gossip,if they had lived another five or ten years longer.Any road,I wished that Georgia O'keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz had written a secret diary or two,about this fascinating case.And just kept the private journals for their close friends and associates to safeguard.They may have seen the kidnapping as a way to help save the art world from censorship and restrictions.They were concerned of fascist leaderships forbiding expressive artworks.(Excellent book.Also check out www.charlesalindberghjr.com)

Detailed and informative book about the blow-by-blow account of the lives of two very important American Artists. They turn out to be the most awful people, but human. You wouldn't want to turn your back on either but you won't be able to turn your eyes away either. Must-have for fans.

This book is fascinating. On the other hand, I suspect that much of it is nonsense. Eisler assumes the most sexual interpretation of any vaguely worded letter. So, for example, if two women have become "close" she assumes that they are lovers. I lost track of the times that I wrote "oh, please!" in the margins. Her leaps sometimes defy logic. Much of her conclusions seem to be the product of her fantasies rather than fully substantiated factual conclusions.
