Konrad Cramer (Germany)
Untitled, Figure study
Gelatin silver print, ca. 1935
Signed by the photographer and annotated "Woodstock C O C", in pencil mount recto. NOTE: Cramer, who emigrated to the United States from Germany at the age of 23, spent the majority of his career in Woodstock, New York. He pursued painting, drawing, and photography, after having met Alfred Stieglitz in the early teens. Stieglitz impressed upon Cramer the artistic power of the camera, and, as Cramer's wife later wrote, he "took up photography to clarify aesthetic issues in painting." The majority of Cramer's photographic works were abstracts and solarizations, his nudes are uncommon.
