Charlotte Spaulding


Look at the photo above.

What do you see?

It's a 1908 autochrome by Edward Steichen, recently come to light after decades in storage, most likely in a cupboard or closet, in the home of 97-year old Charlotte Albright of Buffalo.

Mrs. Albright's mother was Charlotte Spaulding, a friend and student of Steichen who became the subject of his autochrome portraits, including the one above.

Randy Kennedy, in a May 21, 2007 New York Times Arts section front page story, described the unlikely series of events that led to the discovery of these extraordinary works.
