After Stieglitz's death in 1945, Georgia O'Keefe and Doris Bey sorted through more than 2500 of his photographs and selected at least one print of every mounted photograph in his possession at the time of his death.

Carefully curated by O'Keeffe to include the finest examples, the Key Set traces the evolution of Stieglitz's work, from its inception in the 1880s to its rich maturation in the 1930s, and thoroughly documents all aspects of his decisive contribution to the art of photography.
