  • Catalogue Essay

    Dana Desboro Glover and Edward Steichen met at the New York Camera Club before secretly marrying in 1923. Dana was the subject of numerous portraits during the 1920s and 1930s, including the present lot. Likely laying besides her, looking through the blades of grass, and separated only by the camera, Steichen captured his lover and wife in a subtle and serene moment of happiness.
