Georgia O’Keeffe and Her Times
American Modernism from the Lane Collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
October 2, 2009–January 31, 2010
In the 1950s, William H. Lane (1914–1995), the owner of a small Massachusetts manufacturing plant, began assembling an extraordinary collection of American modern art, which in 1990 was donated to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. With major paintings by Georgia O’Keeffe, Arthur G. Dove, Stuart Davis, Charles Sheeler and other artists, the exhibition shows the collector’s passion for art that reflects the diversity and dynamism of American modernism.
The exhibition was organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Nagoya/Boston Museum of Fine Arts and will show at Nashville’s Frist Art Center from October 2, 2009-January 31, 2010.
