The image is a fine full-tone photogravure from CAMERA WORK 27, 1909.

This image is from a series of figure studies made collaboratively by Stieglitz and White in 1907, and published in issue 27 of Camera Work, March 1909. The text which accompanied the photogravures read: "A little over two years ago, Alfred Stieglitz and Clarence H. White, in consequence of various lively discussions with some painters about portrait painting and the impossibility of the camera to do certain things, began a series of experiments to demonstrate the pliability of straight photography as a medium for portraiture and figure work and so disprove the painters’ contentions."
