“I have some beautiful prints of you—& waxed—spotted—ready to be mounted. But they really need no mounting—no presentation. They just are. How you’ll like them as ‘Portraits’ I don’t know. As prints, as photographs, everyone will have to like them. They exist. So your work & kind willingness have not all been in vain. And I’m glad. And Paul will be glad too when he sees the results. They are entirely different from his things of you. Perhaps they will clarify some things” (Stieglitz to Rebecca Strand, 1 November 1922 [YCAL]).
