"ARTnews", the oldest art magazine in America and the most widely circulated art magazine in the world, is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2002. This volume celebrates and commemorates this milestone event, presenting 100 photographic portraits commissioned by and reproduced in the magazine since its origin. The photographs chronicle the history of the magazine and present a "who's who" of people who have shaped the art world over the 20th century. The volume includes photographs of many of the great European and American artists of the 20th century, including George Bellows, Francis Bacon, Pablo Picasso, Piet Mondrian, Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder and Alice Neel. The photographers - often as fascinating as their subjects - range from Zaida Ben-Yusuf, Alice Boughton (early members of Alfred Stieglitz's circle), and Jessie Tarbox Beals (perhaps the first woman photojournalist) to Stieglitz himself, Man Ray and Cecil Beaton. Contemporary photographers featured in the book include Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Arnold Newman, Richard Avedon and Robert Mapplethorpe. The text also presents an essay by William F. Stapp exploring the historical context of portrait photography in "ARTnews"; an essay on the history of "ARTnews" by Pete Hamill; and an essay by Milton Esterow, editor and publisher of ARTnews, discussing his personal view of the magazine.
