Magnified flowers and Mexican landscapes will soon land in our capital. Don’t miss a rare chance to see Georgia O’Keeffe’s truly gorgeous (in every way) body of work, primarily because none of her work is on display in public collections in the UK. She was best known for her abstract paintings and depictions of natural forms.
This will be the first exhibition of O’Keeffe’s work in 20 years. Come first and foremost to challenge the female vs male divide, a topic O’Keeffe’s paintings so naturally conjure up.
“Men put me down as the best woman painter…
…I think I’m one of the best painters.”
The highlight of the show for us will be Jimson Weed / White Flower No. 1 (pictured), the most expensive painting by a woman ever sold at auction (not a small feat Georgia). The exhibition will open with her charcoals that were first exhibited in 1915 and will end on more conceptual river scenes from the early 1960s, an unfeigned journey through her life and career.
From July 6th at The Tate Modern’s Eyal Ofer Galleries, this is really a show not to be missed. Head over on a Summer afternoon in your very best attire to get lost in the ethereal landscape of O’Keeffe’s New Mexico.
