Key Set Entry

Remarks

Born in Norway, John Nilsen Laurvik, an art and photography critic who contributed many articles to Camera Work and other periodicals, was also a member of the Photo-Secession. His own work was featured in an “Exhibition of Caricatures in Charcoal by Mr. Marius de Zayas; and Autochromes by Mr. J. Nilsen Laurvik,” held at 291 from 4 to 16 January 1909.

The date is based on the composition, soft focus, and type of photographic materials.
