Florine Stettheimer’s (1871–1944) experience of pre-World War I European culture in Berlin, Stuttgart, and Paris brought to fruition—after her return to the United States—a wide range of activities in art, poetry, and theater. With her sisters, Carrie and Ettie, the artist hosted a salon for modernists in Manhattan—including the likes of Marcel Duchamp, Henry McBride, and Georgia O’Keeffe. This became the setting for displaying her own whimsical artwork and for circulating her witty poems. This exhibition will focus on the artist’s paintings, which feature her family and fellow artists at social gatherings, as well as modern New Yorkers at work and leisure.
