DALLAS (AP) — Little-known works by the younger sister of famed artist Georgia O'Keeffe will take center stage at an exhibit that will debut at the Dallas Museum of Art in 2017 before going on tour.

The exhibit will feature about 40 paintings, watercolors, prints and drawings by Ida O'Keeffe, along with photographs of her taken in the 1920s by her sister's husband, acclaimed photographer Alfred Stieglitz.

Sue Canterbury, a curator of American art the museum who is organizing the exhibition, says Ida O'Keeffe had "a very good eye," adding she was "very skilled in the art of composition and also in technique."

Canterbury hopes the exhibit, titled "Ida O'Keeffe: Escaping Georgia's Shadow," will help reveal Ida O'Keeffe both as a person and an artist.
