Florine Stettheimer

Author(s): Karin Althaus; Susanne Böller


When the Museum of Modern Art sent its first exhibition to Europe, Florine Stettheimer (1871-1944) joined Georgia O'Keeffe as the only women included. Stettheimer's sensuous paintings and eccentric poetry earned her a place at the heart of the modernist avant-garde. The guest lists for her extravagant New York garden parties read like a who's who of the 1920s art scene. Marcel Duchamp, Albert Gleizes, and Francias Picabia, among others, all flocked to the events she assembled, and following her death Duchamp curated a retrospective exhibition of the ardent feminist's work in the Museum of Modern Art--the venue's first such show dedicated to a woman. Illustrated with selections from Stettheimer's works and poems, Florine Stettheimer tells an exciting new history of the modernist movement through the lens of the woman at its center and is a great addition to the bestselling series Great Masters of Art.
