Key Set Entry
Wilhelm Hasemann, seated, was a German artist who met Edward Stieglitz in Karlsruhe in 1881, perhaps through their mutual friend, the artist Fedor Encke. Shortly after their first meeting Hasemann sent Edward Stieglitz a drawing on a postcard that so pleased the American he asked Hasemann to send him similar cards on a regular basis. Edward Stieglitz subsequently helped Hasemann build a studio in Gutach (Leopold Stieglitz to Georgia O’Keeffe, 3 September 1946, YCAL). Alfred visited Hasemann in Gutach in the spring of 1882, and the entire Stieglitz family, including Alfred, vacationed there in the summer of 1882. Stieglitz again visited in 1894.
For Stieglitz’s description of Gutach, see Key Set number 171.
