WASHINGTON — This city has a flair for polishing up the public images of great national icons. Maybe that’s why artist Georgia O’Keeffe selected the National Gallery of Art 60 years ago to house the collection of photographs by her late husband, artist Alfred Stieglitz.
Standing guard over Stieglitz’s flame is Sarah Greenough, the gallery’s photographic curator, who in turn works under the watchful eye of sculptor Juan Hamilton, the late artist’s personal representative. Over the years, the two have worked together on four major Stieglitz shows at the National Gallery. The most recent one, featuring never-before-exhibited nudes of O’Keeffe, is on display here until Sept. 2, when it moves to Houston.
