In honor of the first show of Alfred Stieglitz’s New York photos in nearly eight decades, the Times has published an enchanting series of his images from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The full exhibition of 39 vintage photos runs at the Seaport Museum through Jan. 10.

Stieglitz, married to artist Georgia O’Keeffe, was a master networker in the arts world.

His New York City galleries - the 291, the Intimate Gallery and an American Place - exhibited the work of the day’s leading artists and photographers. Picasso had his first solo exhibition at the 291, in 1911.

Photographer Edward Steichen, brother-in-law of Carl Sandburg, was a close friend who helped him start the 291. Steichen described Stieglitz’s body of work as “like none ever made by any other photographer.”

Stieglitz died in 1946, at age 82.
