Portrait Photograph of Babette Goldman, 1917


On January 21, 1890, Henry Goldman married Babette Kaufman (1871-1954), the daughter of another elite German-Jewish family in New York. Over time, Babette Goldman became known both for her beauty and style and for her philanthropy, which centered largely on children. This portrait photograph was taken by Arnold Genthe, a German-American photographer whose biography is included in the present project.
