    This dry and draggy tome reports incredible detail on the intertwined lives of four artists. I know Georgia O'Keeffe's work and am vaguely familiar with Steinglitz, but I guess my lack of interest and scorn for the incestuous nature of the art world made for a total disregard for this ...

    I had only known of Georgia O'Keeffe before reading this book. The others were merely names till I read this biography. Of course, I was aware that Alfred was Georgia's mentor and love, but that's that. This book is not about the gossip, as much as it is about art and what it does to a...

    3.75 stars An oddly dissatisfying biopic looking at the brief tangential moment when Paul Strand, Rebecca Salsbury, Alfried Stieglitz and Georgia O'Keefe formed an intimate art circle at the height of the New York Gallery 291 era. Everyone knows that Georgia O'Keefe is the one we re...

    Maybe more than 3 stars but definitely not 4. Not a whole lot of insight but very well researched and solid. Restrained when narrating some outrageous behavior. Bottom line: Stieglitz was kind of an idiot. ...

    Carolyn Burke's Foursome examines the confluence of artists' lives and the emergence of modern American Art in their wake. Covering a period from the turn of the century into the 1950s, the book uses epistolary evidence to shed light on the loves and lives of Alfred Stieglitz (the Capt...

    https://rogueliterarysociety.com/f/fo... ...this narrative traces the relations of these four strong people over several decades, in the hope of depicting the sometimes joyful, sometimes exasperated intermingling of their lives as artists, lovers, and friends? I came to this re...

    I was provided a review copy of this from the publisher through First to Read. I admit unfamiliarity with three of the foursome, though I recognize Strand and of course, O?Keeffe (I got to see an exhibition of some if her works in Oklahoma some 30 years ago, too young to truly apprec...

    This is the story of two artist couples: Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O'Keeffe and their far less famous friends, Paul Strand and Rebecca Salsbury. I've long admired O'Keeffe's work and have read a lot about her, so there wasn't much I didn't remember reading before, other than the odd...

    Interesting facts about the four artists. I've read several of O'Keeffe's life but this gave some new information. The photography and paintings were illustrated in several places within the book. ...

    Tangled Lives The voluminous correspondence of four charismatic companions inspires Carolyn Burke's latest forensic biography. Burke's impressive new book Foursome provides, among other things, a compelling portrait of American modernism in the making. The players here are no less tha...

    I thought this book gave equal time to all these artists in particular Rebecca Salisbury, who often seems to disappear historically after her divorce from Paul Strand. Insightful and a pleasant read. I really enjoyed it ...
