Seven Americans
Seven Americans

This catalog accompanied the exhibition Seven Americans at Bruce Silverstein Gallery September 6 - October 20 2012, a rendition of Alfred Stieglitz' eponymous 1925 exhibition, which showcased seven of the most important American artists working during the period: Georgia O'Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, John Marin, Arthur Dove, Charles Demuth, Paul Strand, and Alfred Stieglitz. It was through this seminal show that Stieglitz, playing the role of both artist and curator, sought to define for the art world a uniquely American modern vision, which he indentified in the shared aesthetic and ideological tenets of this group of artists. This catalog features an essay by Carol Troyen, Curator Emerita of American Paintings, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, titled Seven Americans: Equivalence in American Modernism.
