The image is a fine full-tone photogravure from CAMERA WORK 15, 1906.

George H. Seeley (1880 - 1955) studied painting and drawing at the Massachusetts Normal Art School, 1897 - 1902. A visit to the studio of F. Holland Day in 1902, rekindled an early interest in photography. A series of exhibitions in 1904, brought Seeley to the attention of Alfred Stieglitz, and an invitation to become a Fellow of the Photo-Secession. In 1906, two photogravures were included in an issue of Camera Work, and five photographs are exhibited in the inaugural exhibition of the Photo-Secession Galleries; subsequently, a joint exhibition with Baron de Meyer, and a solo exhibition were held at the Photo-Secession Galleries. In 1908, Seeley's failure to send prints for an exhibition organized by Stieglitz in Dresden, resulted in a breach between them. In 1910 and 1913, solo exhibitions in Buffalo garnered sales and favorable reviews. However, by 1920, Seeley ceased to publish or exhibit his photographs.
