The Tiger's Eye: The Art of a Magazine
The Tiger’s Eye, a widely read magazine of art and literature, was published in nine quarterly issues from 1947 to 1949 by writer Ruth Stephan and painter John Stephan. It took its name from the poem by William Blake. The Tiger’s Eye featured European and American Surrealists, members of the Latin American avant-garde, and young American painters who would soon be known as Abstract Expressionists. The artists, among them Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, Adolph Gottlieb, Stanley William Hayter, André Masson, Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko, Anne Ryan, Kay Sage, Kurt Seligmann, Rufino Tamayo, and Mark Tobey, as well as art editor and copublisher John Stephan himself, range across the cultural forefront of the postwar period.
