Georgia O’Keeffe: abstraction and the natural world
With Dr Carolyn Kastner from the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum
The most prolific period of Georgia O’Keeffe’s long and creative career began in 1918 when she showed her abstract charcoals for the first time at Alfred Stieglitz’s New York Gallery 291.
In this special lecture, curator from the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, Dr Carolyn Kastner tells the story of the next ten years, when O’Keeffe perfected her skills for distilling and abstracting compositions from the natural world, work that distinguished her from the men of the Stieglitz Circle.
