About this artwork

Born in Germany, the sculptor, printmaker, and photographer Arnold Rönnebeck studied art in Munich and
Paris, where he befriended the American artists Charles Demuth and Marsden Hartley. This work, executed in New York after Rönnebeck immigrated to the United States in 1923, combines a traditional subject with a Cubist abstraction of form. The artist also produced a sculpture entitled American Wedding, which may have been intended to form a pair with London Wedding. The photographer and art dealer Alfred Stieglitz supported Rönnebeck’s career and provided him with important connections in the American art world.
