Key Set Entry

Remarks

A painter who lived in Westport, Connecticut, Florence Cane and her husband Melville were supporters of Stieglitz, O’Keeffe, and Arthur Dove. Her own paintings were exhibited at the Anderson Galleries in 1922.

“Weather has been glorious.—Plenty of sun to permit printing quite a bit.—And some of the prints are ready for mounting.—And some are truly beautiful. A portrait I did of Georgia I did on the same day I tried Florence Cane is quite extraordinary” (Stieglitz to Paul Rosenfeld, 22 July 1922 [YCAL]).

A variant of this photograph was reproduced in Vanity Fair 18 (July 1922), 50.
