Mrs. Selma Schubart

Alfred Stieglitz American

Not on view

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.

Mrs. Selma Schubart, Alfred Stieglitz (American, Hoboken, New Jersey 1864–1946 New York), Autochrome
