Georgia O’Keeffe: Art, Image, Style
March 30, 2019 - June 23, 2019
Through 27 paintings, 72 portrait photographs, and 70 original garments, Georgia O’Keeffe: Art, Image, Style inventively shows how this pioneering modern artist developed a fresh style–an artistic voice–that touched everything around her as well as her art. O’Keeffe’s brand of modernism sought simplicity, distillation, and clarity. That highly personal aesthetic comes to life in Wichita Art Museum galleries in spring 2019 through comparisons of the artist’s own clothing with striking portraits and stunning artworks.
Georgia O’Keeffe: Art, Image, Style is organized by the Brooklyn Museum with guest curator Wanda M. Corn, Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor Emerita in Art History, Stanford University, and made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts.
