Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George
June 15, 2013 – September 15, 2013

The Hyde Collection, in association with the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, is organizing a first-of-its-kind exhibition that will closely examine the extraordinary body of work created by O’Keeffe of and at Lake George. From 1918 until the mid 1930s, O’Keeffe (1887-1986) spent part of the year at Alfred Stieglitz’s family estate, a thirty-six acre property situated just north of Lake George village in the southern basin of the lake. The exhibition will present a selection of fifty-eight paintings from both public and private collections.
