Cattleya Orchid, Two Hummingbirds and a Beetle, ca. 1875-1890 oil on canvas by Martin Johnson Heade, and October Interior, 1963 oil on canvas by Fairfield Porter, are currently on display in the Philbrook’s contemporary gallery. A French Music Hall, 1906 oil on canvas by Everett Shinn, and The Steel Mill, 1930 oil on canvas on Masonite by Thomas Hart Benton, will be in the American galleries in early December.

“We are pleased to share this glimpse of the Crystal Bridges Museum collection with the public and to strengthen our relationship with such a wonderful neighbor and colleague museum,” said Don Bacigalupi, Crystal Bridges executive director. “We hope this opportunity will entice more people to visit Tulsa and the Philbrook to see these four masterworks.”
