Florine Stettheimer

Florine Stettheimer, American artist, in her Bryant Park garden c.1917-1920. Image held in the collection of the Florine Stettheimer papers, Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Columbia University. Florine Stettheimer''' (August 29, 1871 - May 11, 1944) was an American painter, designer, and poet.

Stettheimer preferred to restrict showing her work to a more private audience as opposed to exhibiting publicly. With her sisters, Carrie and Ettie, she hosted a salon for modernists in Manhattan, which included Marcel Duchamp, Henry McBride, and Georgia O'Keeffe, and she confined most exhibitions of her own work to these gatherings; occasionally Florine also submitted work to the Society of Independent Artists. Florine also shared original poems in her salons, and a book of her work, entitled ''Crystal Flowers'', was published privately and posthumously by her sister, Ettie Stettheimer, in 1949; it was reissued to acclaim in 2010.
