Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) was an American photographer who dedicated his professional life to promoting photography as a legitimate and modern art form, and is considered one of the most important figures in visual arts in the United States. In 1900, Alfred Stieglitz, who was already a well-established artist, met Edward Steichen for the first time and they quickly became close friends. This portrait was taken in Stieglitz’ gallery 291 in 1915, depicting Stieglitz with the determined expression of someone who vigorously championed photography as a legitimate art form.
