Vivien Fryd, Ph.D., professor and chair of the history of art department at Vanderbilt University, will examine the art of the early American Modernists associated with the so-called Stieglitz circle—painters Georgia O’Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, Arthur Dove, John Marin, Joseph Stella, and Charles Sheeler as well as photographers Gertrude Käisebeir, Anne Brigman, Alfred Stieglitz, and Edward Steichen. The styles, themes, and historical contexts of these modern visual images will be examined, focusing especially upon themes of sexuality, the city, spirituality, and nature.
