Georgia O’Keeffe rarely seen 1926 work
The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in New Mexico now owns a rarely seen painting by the artist who helped usher in American modernism.
The museum in Santa Fe recently bought “The Barns, Lake George” for $3.3 million. The 1926 painting portrays rustic barns that overlooked the shores of Lake George, New York.
It has been in a private collection since 1946 and has only been shown publicly once in the last 50 years.
