It was recently revealed that Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee, quietly sold off a painting by the early American Modernist, Florine Stettheimer, as well as a work by the celebrated illustrator, Rockwell Kent, several years ago. The works were part of the University’s Alfred Stieglitz art collection, which was donated to the institution by Stieglitz’s widow, Georgia O’Keeffe. Fisk University attempted to unload two more works from the collection after the initial sale (which remained under wraps), but was told that the plan violated the conditions of the gift.
