Related Key Set Photographs

  • Alfred Stieglitz
    Lake George
    1922/1923
    gelatin silver print
    Key Set Number 804

Remarks

The dates for this photograph and Key Set number 804 are based on compositional similarities to Key Set numbers 792–802, and the inscription on another print of Key Set number 804, which indicates that these two photographs must have been made before 1924. The date inscribed on this print, probably added at the time of the 1944 exhibition, is incorrect.
