About this artwork
When Stieglitz visited the 1904 International Art Exhibition in Dresden, he linked the work by Annan on view with that of David Octavius Hill, which was half a century older: “In the British exhibit but two deserve mention—Hill, the painter-photographer of fifty years ago, and J. Craig Annan. Their pictures will always hold their own in the very best of company—sane, honest, temperamental.”
