The central gallery of “Making Modern” represents five American artists who showed their work in Alfred Stieglitz’s and Edith Halpert’s New York City galleries—Georgia O’Keeffe, Charles Sheeler, Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, and Stuart Davis.

Featuring paintings from the MFA’s William and Saundra Lane Collection, works by these artists, many of whom were close friends and inspiration to each other, are grouped separately, as a means of exploring their own artistic voice and contributions to Modern art.
