Myra Albert Wiggins (1869-1956), a painter as well as a pictorial photographer, was well-versed in the history of Western art from the Renaissance forward. She particularly admired the 17th-century Dutch tradition of sumptuous realism and its modern counterpart in the painting of William Merritt Chase, her mentor at the Art Students League. Wiggins also appreciaeted the paintings of Whitstler, Sargent, the Pre-Raphaelites, and others. Among photographers, her hero was Alfred Stieglitz and her counterparts in the Photo-Secession included Clarence H. White and Gertrude Kasebier.

In this lecture, Roger Hull will explore the art historical and photographic references and echoes in a selection of Wiggins’s best known photographs.
