EDWARD JEAN STEICHEN
Photographer Edward Jean Steichen signed this typed letter in 1965 to arrange a meeting for an interview at the Museum of Modern Art.
Typed letter signed "Edward Steichen". 1 page, 8½x11, on Steichen's personalized letterhead. Jan. 17, 1965. Addressed to Miss Evelyn Scolney, Forest Hills, New York. In full: "Dear Miss Scolney, I usually go into the Museum of Modern Art one or two days a week, and I will phone you when I know on what days I will be going in, and perhaps we can arrange an interview. Sincerely yours, Edward Steichen Es:kb". Steichen (1879-1973, born Eudard Jean Steichen in Bivange, Luxembourg) was an American photographer and a pioneer in American photography and co-founder of the Photo-Secession Group, an organization dedicated to promoting photography as a fine art. He is perhaps best known for his Family of Man exhibition. The showing of 503 photographs was seen by more than nine million people. Steichen, whose early photographs were influenced by his prior training as a painter, was known for his "misty" photographs, which he created by brushing silver salts and other chemicals onto the print to create or eliminate images. In 1905, Steichen and fellow photographer Alfred Stieglitz opened "Little Galleries" (known as "291" for short), a showcase for photography, at 291 Fifth Avenue in New York. Lightly toned and creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
