Biography


The father of Alfred Stieglitz, the renowned twentieth-century photographer and dealer, Edward Stieglitz created impressionist paintings that revealed the beauty of the urban landscape. Born in Germany, Stieglitz immigrated to the United States as a young man. He soon established himself in New York City, where he absorbed the artistic currents of the day and exhibited at the Society of Independent Artists. His work is included in the collection of the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art in Oklahoma. The stylistic links between his paintings and his son Alfred’s photographs suggest some degree of artistic influence between father and son. The pictorial devices that Edward employed in his paintings of the city—the soft handling of architecture, the emphasis on atmosphere, and the flatness of the picture plane—later became associated with Alfred’s work.
