The iconic art of American Georgia O’Keeffe alongside modernist masterpieces by pioneering Australian artists Margaret Preston and Grace Cossington Smith
This ground-breaking exhibition draws together around 30 works by each artist from the breadth of their careers.
While O’Keeffe, Preston and Cossington Smith developed highly individual styles, they are connected by their choice of subject, their experimentation with light, colour and form, and their commitment to presenting alternative ways of seeing the world. Each artist identified in their paintings a personalised or modernised sense of place, and in so doing developed new art forms that expressed something of the identity and culture of their respective nations.
O’Keeffe, Preston, Cossington Smith: Making Modernism is presented by the Heide Museum of Modern Art and the Art Gallery of NSW in partnership with the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe and the Queensland Art Gallery.
