Glens Falls, N.Y. - The Hyde Collection's four-part Summer Lecture Series, organized in conjunction with the exhibition Modern Nature: Georgia O'Keeffe and Lake George on view through September 15, 2013, continues with O'Keeffe and Stieglitz: Lovers, ‘Frenemies,' and Enduring Partners, a look at the romantic and professional lives of Georgia O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz.
On Sunday, August 25, 2013 at 2pm, The Hyde welcomes Lisa Mintz Messinger, former curator at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and author of Georgia O'Keeffe (Thames & Hudson, 2001) and Stieglitz and His Artists: Matisse to O'Keeffe (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2011). She will discuss the enduring, and sometimes tumultuous, relationship between these two art world giants over the course of thirty years.
Curated by Erin B. Coe, Hyde chief curator, and Barbara Buhler Lynes, former curator of the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, and organized in association with the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Modern Nature: Georgia O'Keeffe and Lake George is the first exhibition to explore the formative influence of Lake George on the art and life of Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986).
