Eglin Gallery 165, first floor
In 1968, Dorothy Norman supported the establishment of the Alfred Stieglitz Center at the Philadelphia Museum of Art with an initial gift from her splendid collection of over 500 photographs by Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, Paul Strand, Minor White, and other important twentieth-century photographers, many of whom she knew well. She continued to give generously until her death in 1997, when her entire collection came to the Museum. This installation of approximately 30 works selected from this collection celebrates Dorothy Norman's commitment to the art of photography and her long history of beneficence to the Museum.
