Alfred Stieglitz might be known as the father of American photography, but many of the photographers he championed remain far less famous. Boughton (1866–1943), who was exhibited in Stieglitz’s first Photo-Secession show, was known among her contemporaries for her gauzy portraits of the city’s cultural elite. She’s not exactly a household name, which means that even shallow-pocketed collectors can buy this platinum print, Nude on a Dune from 1906, which is on sale for $6,000.
