Key Set Entry


A young voice student, Marie Rapp worked as Stieglitz’s secretary at 291 from 1911 to 1917, when the gallery closed. She married George Boursault, son of a member of the Photo-Secession, and they, with their young daughter Yvonne, visited Stieglitz and O’Keeffe at Lake George in the early 1920s (see Key Set number 861).

A variant of this image came up for auction at Sotheby’s (6 October 1999, lot 69), accompanied by the note from Marie Rapp: “This portrait of me by Alfred Stieglitz was taken at ‘291’ in 1913.”
