Foursome: Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O’Keefe, Paul Strand, Rebecca Salsbury (2019), by Carolyn Burke

Extensive.  Detailed.  Probing.  Complex.  That’s the book (my rating: four out of five f-stops).  The artists?  Full of themselves, but maybe justified by the enormity of their artistry (well, certainly O’Keefe, probably Stieglitz, not sure about the other two).  I was in the presence of an O’Keefe at the DeYoung years ago - stunning (a flower, if I remember correctly).  Don’t know if I’ve seen anything by the others, but an original Stieglitz would be worth the effort.
