Georgia O’Keeffe In San Diego!
At the San Diego Museum of Art!
This post is for Denise over at Bellis Studios, who introduced me to the beautiful art by Georgia O’Keeffe! If I could fly her out there to see this right now I would! Maybe the exhibit will come to Chicago some day!
“O’Keeffe’s remarkable play of color and abstract form illustrate a path-breaking spirit of bold modernity. The exhibition includes early and rarely seen abstracted landscapes, works that originated from her experience in nature and are surprising for their visual dynamism and pared-down simplicity.
In the work of O’Keeffe, Stieglitz found a partner and the embodiment of the consummate modernist artist. Reinforcing the importance that Stieglitz placed in her artistic persona, the exhibition includes a vital sampling of the numerous photographs he took of O’Keeffe, presenting her as the iconic woman, favored model, and quintessential American modernist.” – www.sdmart.org
