"Painterly Photographs: The Raymond E. Kassar Collection"
2000-12-02 until 2001-02-11
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Aiming to elevate the medium of photography to fine art, Alfred Stieglitz and his American and European contemporaries used their cameras as aesthetic tools rather than recording devices. The exhibition Painterly Photographs, on view at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art December 2, 2000 - February 11, 2001, presents 33 works including rare, large-format photographs, most of which were made for exhibition presentation during 1900-1910. Drawn from a private collection, these exquisite images represent some of the most important camera artists of the time: Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, Heinrich Kuehn, George Seeley and Clarence White.

The PhotoSecessionists, led by Alfred Stieglitz and Clarence White in America, members of the Linked Ring in England and other international pictorial photographers expressly intended their work to emulate traditional art forms. The subjects chosen ranged from intimate, interior scenes to sylvan landscapes to children at idylls, expressing moody and romantic visions of a world filled with light and shadow, beauty and innocence.
