"Mathilde Weil studied drawing and painting at the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts, the Decorative Art League, and the Museum of Industrial Arts. She acquired her first camera in the winter of 1896 - 1897, and according to her own account, established a portrait studio within two months. Among the photographic exhibitions in which she participated were the Philadelphia salons of 1898 - 1900, the London salons of 1898 - 1901, and the American Institute exhibitions of 1898 - 1899. Three of Weil's photographs were seen in the inagugural exhibition of the Photo-Secession in 1902 at the National Arts Club. She was also represented in two subsequent Photo-Secession organized shows at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Carnegie Institute in 1904."- Petersen, Christian A., ALFRED STIEGLITZ'S CAMERA NOTES.
