In 1949 Georgia O’Keeffe donated 101 works of art, ranging from African masks to Modernist paintings, to Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. Most of the objects had been collected by O’Keeffe’s late husband, Alfred Stieglitz, a photographer, gallery owner, and tireless champion of American Modernists, including O’Keeffe, Charles Demuth, Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, and John Marin, among many others. The Artists’ Eye: Georgia O’Keeffe and the Alfred Stieglitz Collection celebrates a partnership between Fisk University and Crystal Bridges that allows this important collection to be shared between Nashville and Bentonville.
