The subject of this photograph is Stieglitz’s flamboyant youngest sister, Selma, wearing a Fortuny dress. Authorship of the image is uncertain: this plate was donated by Georgia O’Keeffe to the Metropolitan in 1955 as a work by Stieglitz; a nearly identical plate was donated to George Eastman House in 2001 by Edward Steichen’s widow as a work by her husband.
