When Stieglitz first entered the Technische Hochschule, Berlin, in the winter semester, 1882, he lived with Erdmann Encke, a sculptor and amateur photographer who made this monument of Queen Louise in the Tiergarten, Berlin. His brother, Fedor, had lived with the Stieglitz family in New York in 1877.
In March 1894, Stieglitz was awarded a “certificate” for this photograph in The Amateur Photographer’s “Monthly Lantern Slide Competition—No. 58—Copies of Pictures, Engravings, Statuary, Etc.”
