Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Receives Archive from O’Keeffe Friend’s Heirs

The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum’s research center has announced it’ll be receiving a donation of correspondence, interviews, and other materials given by Brian and Bina Garfield in honor of Bina Garfield’s mother, Frances O’Brien—a good friend of Georgia O’Keeffe and an portrait artist and writer. The gift includes letters exchanged between Frances O’Brien and Georgia O’Keeffe between the years of 1946 and 1973. There are also interviews with Frances O’Brien, and images of O’Keeffe and O’Brien from the 1940s to the ‘70s included in the gift.

Said Eumie Imm Stroukoff, Emily Fisher Landau Director of the research center, “We believe that the O’Brien collection will open new avenues for scholarship due to the scope of the correspondence and the content in the interviews.”
