Key Set Entry


Paul Rosenfeld was a close friend of Stieglitz from 1916 until his death in 1946. A critic and author of Musical Portraits: Interpretations of Twenty Modern Composers (1920), Port of New York: Essays on Fourteen American Moderns (1924), Men Seen: Twenty-Four Modern Authors (1925), Rosenfeld also wrote By Way of Art: Criticisms of Music, Literature, Painting, Sculpture, and the Dance (1928). On the table are copies of Waldo Frank, Our America (1919), Van Wyck Brooks, The Ordeal of Mark Twain (1920), his own book Musical Portraits, and Carl Sandburg, Smoke and Steel (1920).

“I have been trying to photograph Rosenfeld. Negatives are proofing now” (Stieglitz to Paul Strand, 22 October 1920 [YCAL and CCP]).
