In connection with Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George, The Hyde Collection is organizing a companion exhibition entitled, A Family Album: Alfred Stieglitz and Lake George.

During the years 1918 to 1934, Georgia O’Keeffe left the bustle and heat of New York City and headed for the pristine, mountain-rimmed waters of Lake George where her companion, and later husband, Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946), and his family kept a summer home. Comprised of thirty-six bucolic acres located a mile north of Lake George village on the western shoreline, their country retreat known as “the Hill” was a former farm and contained a large farmhouse and a number of barns and outbuildings. Today, the property is a residential subdivision and is identified with a historic marker at the foot of the hill.

Through a selection of approximately thirty photographs by the influential photographer, critic, and dealer Alfred Stieglitz, A Family Album will take an intimate look at the people who resided on the property while O’Keeffe was in residence there, including members of the Stieglitz family, and the special place that bound them together.

Lenders to the exhibition include The Adirondack Museum and Alfred Stieglitz’s grandniece Sue Davidson Lowe. The exhibition is curated by Erin B. Coe, Chief Curator, The Hyde Collection and Caroline Welsh, Senior Art Historian and Director Emerita, The Adirondack Museum.
