Her Daughter

The Walter Ufer Papers in the archives of the Rockford Art Museum Permanent Collection consist of typed and handwritten letters to and from painter Walter Ufer between 1923 and 1935. Organizations cited include the Art Institute of Chicago, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Taos Society of Artists, and a number of galleries and museums in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, and Santa Fe, N.M. Specific exhibitions are referenced, as are many nationally prominent artists and art advocates – Walter Pach, Virgil Barker, Dudley Crafts Watson, Charles Burkholder, Robert Harshe, and Ufer’s wife, artist Mary Fredericksen, among them. Subjects range from governance structure for art organizations to generational and regional shifts in attitudes toward modern and contemporary art.—excerpted from the commemorative book RAM 100: Rockford Art Museum Centennial, 1913–2013
