Florine Stettheimer: New Directions in Multimodal Modernism
“Florine Stettheimer is my favourite artist.”
Stettheimer (1871-1944) was Modernism’s great “outlier”—a highly original artist with a boldly interdisciplinary aesthetic that attracted such luminaries as Marcel Duchamp, Georgia O’Keefe, and Andy Warhol. They understood, admired, and were inspired by Stettheimer. This collection of essays by a wide range of contemporary writers and thinkers explores the multimodality of Stettheimer’s creative output and the salon culture by her and her sisters Carrie and Ettie in New York from 1915 to 1935. This publication theorizes, engages and situates Stettheimer’s innovative contributions to art history and illustrates the aesthetic genealogy of her vision and its influence through to the contemporary moment.
