This photograph shows a reunion of friends. The Sternbergers and Einstein had known one other in Europe and met again in Princeton. Ilse was Sternberger’s wife, collaborator, and perennial foil. She was a constant source of warmth during sometimes-contentious sittings. She also helped document their life, publishing several articles on Sternberger’s work and their sessions with famous sitters after his death.
