The dates for this photograph and Key Set number 1405 are based on the Stieglitz–O’Keeffe correspondence, which indicates that the porch of the Lake George farmhouse was painted in the spring of 1932 (YCAL).

A frequent visitor to Lake George and An American Place, Jerome Mellquist was a critic and author of The Emergence of an American Art (1942), which celebrated the accomplishments of Stieglitz and the artists associated with him.
