Key Set Entry

Remarks

“I’ve photographed a very amusing interior—a corner—Judith (the marble heroine with busts to bust)—she on top of the iron safe—she draped with a branch of apples & shrivelling [sic] leaves—glimpse of a white door—golf sticks—a Walkowitz—[on] odd wall paper—a red plush chair—on it a large medicine ball—flanking the marble (real marble—Carrara) a bottle of Mirror Candy—& a bottle of 3 in 1. So there you are for Modernity—& a style!—The photograph is not Art—just good fun—a corner as I found it—In Nature—! —” (Stieglitz to Herbert Seligmann, 4 September 1922 [YCAL]).
