In Alfred Stieglitz: The Key Set: The Alfred Stieglitz Collection of Photographs, Sarah Greenough locates two versions of this print in institutional collections: The Philadelphia Museum of Art and The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. This image is first in a series of Equivalents (see Greenough, The Key Set, p. 750).
O’Keeffe is a constant source of wonder to me—like Nature itself—& all fine humans—there are some.—I know some.—And every moment I am full of gratefulness that I am a great fortunate.—O’Keeffe & I are One in a real sense... Every moment is a happy eternity—sometimes—rarely—the moment is of intensest pain but even that turns into a great glory. – We are both either intensely sane or mad children... It makes no difference.
