Painting gender, constructing theory : the Alfred Stieglitz Circle and American formalist aesthetics by Marcia Brennan( Book )

17 editions published between 1458 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Painting Gender, Constructing Theory, Marcia Brennan examines how Stieglitz and the critics drew on early twentieth-century discourses on sex and the psyche, particularly the theories of Sigmund Freud and Havelock Ellis, to characterize the artworks of the Stieglitz circle. Critics routinely described the often highly abstracted paintings of Georgia O'Keeffe, Arthur Dove, John Marin, Marsden Hartley, and Charles Demuth as transparent displays of the most intimate aspects of the self, taking both subject matter and painterly form to be guided by the artist's own gendered and psychic energies."
