Late American photographer Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) is best known for lending prestige to the once overlooked medium of photography. In “Stieglitz and His Artists: Matisse to O’Keefe,” the first major exhibition of works from Stieglitz’s personal, hand-picked collection, the Metropolitan Museum of Art illuminates the artist’s significant role as an avid connoisseur and promoter of the arts. Picasso’s charcoal drawing Standing Female Nude, 1910, is just one of over 300 works on view.

On view now through January 2, 2012. Please visit metmuseum.org for more information.
