Remarks

The titles of this photograph and the following Key Set numbers are based on those used for Stieglitz’s 1923 exhibition at the Anderson Galleries: 792, 794, 795, 796, 797, 798, 799, 800, 801, and 802.

They are numbered according to Stieglitz’s inscriptions on the Gallery’s prints and those included as part of the 1924 gift to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. This series was probably made between late August and October 1922.
