Weekend Art Picks, New York

Original Autochromes in Stieglitz, Steichen, Stand

The Metropolitan Museum of Art will be displaying five original autochromes by Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen.

Therefore, these rare images will only be on view for a few short days ending Sunday, January 30th. Read more...

Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, 1918. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Gift of Georgia O'Keeffe, through the generosity of The Georgia O'Keeffe Foundation and Jennifer and Joseph Duke, 1997.
