One of the most celebrated photographers of the twentieth century, Edward Weston (1886–1958) cultivated relationships with women whose influence profoundly affected his life and work. Not simply model, muse, or student, they were partners, activists, and artists themselves. In addition to Weston’s work, this exhibition of sumptuous and rare vintage prints featured photographs by Magrethe Mather, Tina Modotti, Anita Brenner, Sonya Noskowiak, Imogen Cunningham, Charis Wilson, and Dody Weston.

Weston’s Women has been organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions and features work from the collection of Judith G. Hochberg and Michael P. Mattis. It has been supported at the Allentown Art Museum through the generosity of the Audrey & Bernard Berman Fund and the Leon C. & June W. Holt Endowment Fund.
