Remarks

Katharine Dudley was a teacher and artist who may have met O’Keeffe through their association with the Columbia University Teachers College.

“ . . . All day yesterday I tried to make some Palladios. Slaved all day. Some mean negatives. Just three or four—dense—fogged-over. I hate to have any negative beat me. And all summer I’ve been trying to coax these beauties into giving me at least one usable print. The foolishness of it. A silent fight between us. I feel the negatives will have the better of the argument. I am finally letting myself be counted ‘Out.’ It’s just a picture of legs at that—Katharine Dudley’s. And the new Davidson.—Interesting ideas—& a rather new treatment.—Isn’t one a fool?” (Stieglitz to Rebecca Strand, 23 August 1922 [YCAL]).

Lifetime Exhibitions

A print from the same negative—perhaps a photograph from the Gallery’s collection—appeared in the following exhibition(s) during Alfred Stieglitz’s lifetime:
