Key Set Entry


Although this image has been variously dated 1924 and 1933, it is unlike anything Stieglitz made either year, but the composition is strongly related to images made in 1927.

In 1942 Stieglitz gave a print of this image to Arthur Dove and Helen Torr, along with a print of Key Set number 1257.
