Remarks

“Have finally one thing I think pretty grand—a tree—a dead one. Also a Portrait—Cary Ross—pretty fine” (Stieglitz to Herbert Seligmann, 6 September 1932, YCAL).

In late August or early September 1932, Ross and Louis Kalonyme visited Lake George. Stieglitz photographed them and O’Keeffe (see Key Set numbers 1480–1489) in front of a piece of mount board hung on the corner of the house.

Cary Ross began working at The Museum of Modern Art in 1929 and subsequently became a frequent visitor to An American Place. In the 1930s he gave a number of Stieglitz photographs to the Cleveland Museum of Art (1935) and to the Baltimore Museum of Art (1939).
