Pablo Picasso – Standing Female Nude, 1910
In 1911, Pablo Picasso sold “Standing Female Nude” to Alfred Stieglitz for $65. It stayed in the Stieglitz collection until 1949, when it was donated to MoMA. Stieglitz introduced the United States to the art of Picasso through the exhibitions at 291 gallery in New York City and his journal, Camera Work, a sumptuous publication that was influencial in both establishing “Pictorialist” fine art photography and heralding the rise of the avant-garde. The print this edition is replicated from, is directly sourced from Camera Work Number 36, October 1911.
