American Artist;Oct1947, Vol. 11 Issue 8, p40
The article discusses how photography was accepted as art which was championed by Alfred Stieglitz, a photographer and a collector of European photographs and artworks. Stieglitz showed Americans through his photographs, exhibits and publications the value of seeing things in a new way, for man's right to think, see and feel as his imagination demands. It is noted that the battle of Stieglitz to make photography considered as an art form was finally won as his own photos and collections were exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art.
