Remarks

“The Dead Poplar here still stands. Looks rather emaciated. And its neighbor—another poplar—also dead from the middle up—Something for me to play with when I get agoing” (Stieglitz to Herbert Seligmann, 26 June 1933, YCAL).

The date is based on inscriptions by Stieglitz on variant images at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (1981-86-1, 1997-146-3, and 1997-146-66).
