ALFRED STIEGLITZ

(1864-1946). American photographer and modern art promoter who was instrumental over his fifty-year career in making photography an accepted art form. In addition to his photography, Stieglitz is best known for the New York art galleries that he ran in the early part of the 20th century, where he introduced many avant-garde European artists to the U.S. He was married for most of his life to painter Georgia O'Keeffe.

Autograph Letter Signed, in pencil, 8vo, postmarked New York, June 26, 1938.

"It’s good to hear from you. To know you bursting with energy--the spirit of life. Good to know you are writing and good to know the child is mending and that you have more time for yourself. I feel as utterly useless even though I am on the mend. Is slow work…How stupid for me to have collapsed. When you happen in town…it could be arranged for you to see me ….” Signed, “Your old Stieglitz.”.

Stieglitz likely refers to the heart attack he suffered in early 1938.
