ALFRED STIEGLITZ. The Key Set. Volumes 1 & 2. The Alfred Stieglitz Collection of Photographs.

Washington D.C. The National Gallery of Art / Abrams, (2002). First edition. Hardcover. Folio. In 1949, Georgia O’Keefe and the Alfred Stieglitz Estate donated 1,311 photographs by Alfred Stieglitz to the National Gallery of Art and placed on deposit an additional collection of 331 portraits of O’Keeffe, which were later given to the Gallery in 1980. This collection, known as the Key Set, is an unparalleled selection of Stieglitz’s photographs, containing at least one print of every mounted photograph in his possession at the time of his death. It remains one of the most important photographic collections in existence. Carefully selected by O’Keeffe to include the finest examples, the Key Set traces the evolution of Stieglitz’s work, from its inception in the 1880s to its rich maturation in the 1930s, and thoroughly documents all aspects of his decisive contribution to the art of photography. 1100 pages bound in light tan cloth with matching slipcase (illustrated with a large photograph). Unopened and still shrink wrapped. With glossary, index, and gallery entries. Issued without dust jacket. Item weighs 18 lbs (shipped at cost.). Fine. Item #14733
