Catch the first major retrospective of Georgia O’Keeffe’s work in the UK for twenty years as it comes to Tate Modern.
A pillar of Modernism, Georgia O’Keeffe is famous for her compelling paintings of the American landscape, from the New York futuristic urban patterns, to the remote and silent views of New Mexico and Lake George. The exhibition brings together a hundred of her most famous and provocative works from a sixty-year career, in order to show the changes from her early abstraction to her later figurative paintings.
Don’t miss the highlight of the exhibition, Jimson Weed, White Flower No. 1, the most expensive painting by a female artist ever sold at auction, a beautiful example of O’Keeffe’s interest in the similarity between flowers and the female body. The show also displays some fascinating photographic portraits of O’Keeffe taken by her husband and photographer Alfred Stieglitz.
This is a unique opportunity to discover one of the greatest American female artists, since there are currently no works by O’Keeffe in public collections in the UK.
