Georgia O’Keefe: Picturing New Mexico
Born in Wisconsin, O’Keefe gained fame in New York in the 1920s before beginning her annual sojourns to New Mexico in 1929, where she relocated permanently in 1949. This talk focuses on how the landscapes and objects of New Mexico became transformational subjects in O’Keefe’s art, as she combined realism and abstraction with bold use of line and color. Look at examples, and supplement these with photos taken by the instructor in the areas where O’Keefe painted.
