A Closer Look at Georgia O’Keefe

The largest show (ever!) in Canada of Georgia O’Keefe’s work is opening at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

There’s an article today in the Globe and Mail discussing the show.  Click here to read Rosie Prata’s excellent description of this retrospective.  I am intrigued by the AGO’s interpretation of O’Keefe’s large body of work.

Curiously enough, last year the Tate Modern hosted the largest showing ever of O’Keefe’s work in Britain. Here is a very brief article from The Telegraph.

We may have missed last year’s show in London, but there’s ample time to plan to visit Toronto.  The show runs until July 30.

    We were in Santa Fe last Christmas and got to the visit the Georgia O’Keefe museum (and the Ranch Church she painted) as well as the Ghost Ranch were she worked for many years, and some sites nearby where she painted some of her most famous paintings, like the Purple Hills and the Chama River,. All worth a visit for O’Keefe fans.
