Photography

This portrait of Rodin, in a pose reminiscent of his famous composition The Thinker, appeared in Alfred Stieglitz’s modern art and photography periodical Camera Work in 1911. Edward Steichen met and became close to the sculptor in Paris in 1901, and in 1908 he arranged for an exhibition of Rodin’s drawings to be held at Stieglitz’s 291 gallery in New York.
