Early modernist Florine Stettheimer (American, 1871–1944) was a well-known figure in New York society, famous for her salons and her art. Newly returned from abroad at the outbreak of World War I, she and her sisters Carrie and Ettie began hosting gatherings with prominent writers and artists including Marcel Duchamp, Marsden Hartley, and Carl Van Vechten. These friends often became subjects for her paintings, which she rarely exhibited and never sold. Many of her works commemorate special occasions, and although she included herself in these paintings, she is usually depicted as a detached observer. Contains 20 cards, 5 of each design, and envelopes. Measures 5 x 7 in.
