Marsden Hartley sailed from Europe on 11 December 1915, arriving in New York before the end of the year. While Stieglitz could have photographed him immediately on his return, Hartley appears to be standing in front of a mounted photograph, possibly a work by Paul Strand that was exhibited at 291 from 13 March to 3 April 1916.
