A rare opportunity to see over 100 remarkable paintings by this pioneer of twentieth-century art
One hundred years after the American painter Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) made her professional debut at the 291 gallery in New York, Tate Modern opens the first UK survey of her work since 1993. The show, which is almost entirely drawn from US collections, speaks to a startling fact: none of O’Keeffe’s works are held by any public UK museum.
With around 100 pieces by the artist, the survey opens with abstract charcoals, including those shown at her first 291 exhibition, and moves through the skyscape series she made in the early 1960s, when she was “still working at the height of her powers”, says Tanya Barson, the curator who organised the exhibition.
