This is the first New York museum show to focus on Heinrich Kuehn (1866-1944), an often overlooked but central figure in turn-of-the-century art circles, whose photographs were exhibited at the Vienna Secession. Born into a wealthy family in Dresden, Kuehn was a member of Vienna’s Camera Club and strove to elevate photography to an art form.
Heinrich Kuehn and His American Circle: Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen features over 100 photographs by Kuehn and also works by Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) and Edward Steichen (1879-1973). Under the influence of the American photographers, Kuehn shifted from making large landscapes taken under dramatic lighting conditions and focused more on scenes of daily life shot under normal light. He also began creating intimate studio and open-air studies of family and close friends, frequently photographed using clothes especially made for these occasions.
This application includes audio that features interviews with the exhibition’s curator, Monika Faber, director of the Photoinstitut Bonartes, and commentary from the director of the Neue Galerie New York, Renée Price.
