Meeting of Constructivists and Dadaists, Weimar, 25 or 26 Sept. 1922

I did post this photo previously but without the full caption; searching for it, I then realized that this picture was regularly and wrongly (in websites as well as in some books) identified with the caption of a second photo of the same event. So there it is then:

from top to bottom and from left to right
1st row : Lucia Moholy, Alfréd Kemény, László Moholy-Nagy
2nd row : Lotte Burchartz, El Lissitzky (with pipe and cap), Cornelis van Eesteren, Bernhard Sturtzkopf
3rd row : Max Burchartz (with child on his shoulders), Harry Scheibe, Theo van Doesburg (with paper hat), Hans Vogel, Peter Röhl
4th row : Alexa Röhl (in all black), Nelly van Doesburg, Tristan Tzara, Nini Smit, Hans Arp
5th row : Werner Graeff and Hans Richter (on ground)

Note : This “Nini Smit” close to Hans Arp and shown in both photos is obviously (for me) Sophie Taeuber (who will marry Arp on the 20 Oct. 1922).
Agree? Desagree?…
