Narrator Amanda Carlin delivers a straightforward performance of this biography of four influential artists of the early twentieth century. The story centers around the established photographer and gallery owner Alfred Stieglitz and his complicated relationships with the young painters Georgia O'Keefe and Rebecca Salsbury and his protégé photographer, Paul Strand. The artists alternatively inspire, antagonize, and flirt with each other while trying to maintain their own independence. Carlin gives subtle differences in voice to the passages taken from the journals and letters of each artist, although it is sometimes hard to differentiate among them. The years between WWI and WWII were a transformative period in the history of American art, and the lives of these fascinating and pivotal characters make for an absorbing listening experience.
