Please add you ideas on who the people are in the photograph. My understanding is that this was a photograph of Robert Henri’s students. My estimate is the photograph was made between 1910 and 1915. Henri began “teaching at the New York School of Art in 1902, where his students included Edward Hopper, Rockwell Kent, George Bellows, Norman Raeben and Stuart Davis…. From 1915 to 1927 he was a popular and influential teacher at the Art Students League of New York.” [1]

The source of the photo I am told was the effects of Lucie Bayard a Painter who studied with Luks & Henri. She is probably in the photo but I have no idea what she looks like.

    The poet Vachel Lindsay studied with Robert Henri (or dropped in on him) at various times between 1904 and 1908, and so might well be in the 1905 photo. I couldn’t quite make out all of the faces to be certain. Henri wisely told Vachel that he’d be much better off as a poet than as a visual artist.
