Color Rush
American color photography from Stieglitz to Sherman

From the Milwaukee Art Museum

Alfred Stieglitz created his first series of autochromes and his excitement led him to organize the first American exhibition of the color process. The show featured photography by Frank Eugene, Edward Steichen and Alfred himself at the gallery 291 with the thought to raise photography to the same status of painting and sculpture. 1907-1910
