Emma Justine Farnsworth (1860-1952) was considered one of the top woman amateur photographer's in the United States at the end of the 20th century. "In late 1897 her work comprised the second one-person exhibition to be seen at the Camera Club of New York, and a few years later her one Camera Notes gravure appeared." (this very image - "Heimchen", was published in the Camera Notes issue of January, 1900) At the Paris Exposition of 1900 her work was included in a special exhibition of American women photographers arranged by Frances Benjamin Johnston. By Farnsworth's own account, she had by this time taken upwards of twenty-five medals in the United States, Canada, England, France, Germany, Italy, and India." (Christian A. Peterson Alfred Stieglitz's Camera Notes The Minneapolis Institute of Arts in association with W.W. Norton & Company, Inc., 1993, p.166)
