Pictorialism: A Century Later, Photographs by John Maggiotto | Donaly Gallery, South Church, Dobbs Ferry
Pictorialism: A Century Later, Photographs by John Maggiotto
The practitioners of Pictorialism worked in the early part of the last century and attempted to make a place for photography as art.  They often resorted to soft focus and moody lighting to mimic the Impressionists who were their contemporaries. The prints made by these artists involved multiple hand-applied coatings of emulsion.  The process was laborious.  This level of craft and intent separated the artists from the “Brownie wielding” multitudes.  Stieglitz, an early supporter through his publication Camera Work, in 1917 denounced the movement as betraying the inherent exactitude of the photographic endeavor and moved the discussion toward the hard-edged work of Paul Strand and others.

through March 11
