  • Catalogue Essay

    In contrast to some of the editorial and commercial work completed by his
    contemporaries, Alfred Steiglitz’s portraits were rarely commissioned and mostly of
    friends and family, like that of the mysterious Miss S.R., believed to be Sophie Raab. The
    sitter’s image, shown comfortable and at ease in front of the camera, graced the pages
    of Camera Work in both October 1905 and January 1913. Additionally, the worked offered
    in the present lot is believed to be unique in this size as a photogravure.
