On Thursday, Sotheby’s auction of property from the estates of modernist icons Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz brought in $17.2 million. The sale, which offered a total of 95 artworks, photographs, and rare ephemera, saw a solid 87 percent sell-through rate, and it far surpassed its pre-sale high estimate of $13.3 million. The house also announced that Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library acquired a grouping of photographs and literature to be included in the school’s Stieglitz/O’Keeffe archival collection in advance of the public auction through private sale. The works were consigned from the collection of fellow artist and O’Keeffe confidante, Juan Hamilton.
