Bror Julius Olsson (BJO) Nordfeldt (1878–1955) was a modernist of international reputation. With a spirit that sought new locations for new artistic inspiration, he lived in or near artist colonies in Provincetown in Massachusetts, Santa Fe in New Mexico, and New Hope in Pennsylvania. The first scholarly assessment in decades and retrospective of the artist is organized by the Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota, which brought together works from fifteen museum and private collections. The exhibition and the accompanying catalogue are the first scholarly assessment of the American modernist Nordfeldt in decades.
