Georgia O’Keeffe at the Tate Modern

georgia_okeeffe_by_stieglitz_1918

Georgia O’Keeffe is best known for her paintings of magnified flowers, animal skulls, and New Mexico desert landscapes. This exhibition brings together some of her most important works, including Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1 1932, the most expensive painting by a female artist ever sold at auction.

 

O’Keeffe, who married pioneering art photographer Alfred Stieglitz in 1924, was seen as a trailblazing painter from early in her career which is seen as American Modernist.

With no works by O’Keeffe in UK public collections this exhibition is a rare chance to see the beauty and skill of her remarkable paintings outside the US.
