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.

Eccentric, private, and withdrawn, Stettheimer protected her lyrical canvases and painterly poems from the vicissitudes of the open and competitive market place. 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 became the setting for displaying her own whimsical artwork and for circulating her witty poems. A book of Stettheimer's poetry, entitled ''Crystal Flowers'', was published privately and posthumously by her sister, Ettie Stettheimer, in 1949; it was reissued to acclaim in 2010.
