About Georgia O'Keefe
Making her debut a century ago, in 1916, O’Keeffe was immediately recognised as a trailblazing artist, while today her legacy as an American art icon and a pioneer of twentieth-century art is widely recognised.
With no works by O’Keeffe in UK public collections this exhibition is a rare chance to see the beauty and skill of her remarkable paintings outside the US.
Men put me down as the best woman painter…
…I think I’m one of the best painters.
- Georgia O’Keeffe
