University to Sell O'Keeffe Gift Painting

Fisk University plans to sell an iconic Georgia O'Keeffe painting donated by the artist in 1949. The sale, designed to raise money for the cash-strapped Nashville university, could break an O'Keeffe sale record of $6.3 million.

The sale of Radiator Building - Night, New York (1927) also may violate the terms of O'Keeffe's gift, which specified the modern art collection of her late husband Alfred Stieglitz not be broken up. Rebecca Bain of member station WPLN reports.
