Description

Georgia O’Keeffe played a pivotal role in the development of American modernism and its relationship to European avant-garde movements of the early-20th century. Producing a substantial body of work over seven decades, she sought to capture the emotion and power of objects through abstracting the natural world. O’Keeffe incorporated the techniques of other artists into her work and was especially influenced by photographer Paul Strand and painter Arthur Dove. However, her art is uniquely her own, and she always danced to her own tune. Join us to learn more about this fascinating artist and woman.
