Fitchburg, Masachusetts.- The Fitchburg Art Museum is proud to present “Pioneers in American 20th Century Photography”, on view at the museum through March 18th. A rare and recently acquired Alfred Stieglitz image “The Steerage” (1907), is the centerpiece of this exhibition featuring early 20th Century American photography. This seminal photograph, printed on Japanese tissue paper, is one of only eight existing in the world. It has been hailed as one of the greatest photographs of all time because it captures in a single image both a formative document of its time and one of the first works of artistic modernism.
