Default Early 20th Century Artist Triad?

Last weekend, I went to the Hide/Seek exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. This is the exhibit focusing on portraits of the LGBT community that stirred up some controversy when it opened.

One of the pieces in the exhibit is a haunting black and white photograph of a two men and a woman on stairs overlooking a beach. The placard explained that they were three artists (from the early 20th century, I can't be any more specific unfortunately) who worked so closely together that they were often referred to collectively by the first syllables of their name strung together (which I unfortunately don't remember either). The two men had been a couple, but eventually incorporated the woman into their relationship, which also remained open.

I took a picture with my cell phone, but since it was crowded (and I wasn't supposed to be taking pictures in the first place), I neglected to take a photo of the placard as well. I don't think it was mentioned in the program (my copy is currently MIA).

Does this ring a bell with anybody? I would love to find out their names.
