The present photograph was included in The Museum of Modern Art’s 1949 exhibition The Exact Instant, for which curator Edward Steichen began collecting newspaper clippings in 1934. He said of his choices for the exhibition: 'The emphasis in the selection of the show has been more on the penetrating quality of the reporting rather than on the importance of the news event.'
