The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum now owns a rarely seen painting by the artist who helped usher in American modernism.

The Santa Fe museum recently purchased “The Barns, Lake George” for $3.3 million. The 1926 O’Keeffe painting portrays rustic barns that overlooked the shores of Lake George, New York. It has been in a private collection since 1946 and has only been shown publicly once in the last 50 years.

The funds to buy the painting came from the money the museum made when it sold other O’Keeffe paintings in 2014. The painting will be displayed in the museum in the coming months.

The Wisconsin-born O’Keeffe died in Santa Fe in 1986.
