curator Manuela Well-Off-Man tells a great story today on the museum's blog: When the museum was unpacking the works in the Alfred Stieglitz Collection that went on exhibit last Friday, it found on the back of a painting by Marsden Hartley another Hartley. The style of the previously covered painting — dark and loosely brush-stroked — is evidence of the influence of Albert Pinkham Ryder on Hartley, Well-Off-Man concludes.
