Description
The photograph was taken at Lake George, New York, where the Stieglitz family maintained a home. Marie Rapp was Stieglitz’ part-time secretary at his gallery 291 beginning in 1911 when she was eighteen years old. She later married George Boursault and they had a child named Yvonne. This photograph was made during the family’s visit to the Stieglitz family compound at Lake George, New York. During the summer of 1923, Stieglitz made nearly fifty photographs of Yvonne, possibly as an exploration of his idea of the serial portrait, which would capture a subject in a succession of images from birth to death.
