In honor of International Women’s Day, here’s a video of one of modernism’s most enduring female painters, Georgia O’Keeffe. The artist had visited New Mexico on and off since 1928 but in 1940 she bought a house in Ghost Ranch. This video captures O’Keeffe at age 92, still in New Mexico, and still drawing inspiration from the landscape around her.
For the first time in more than 25 years, the Metropolitan Museum of Art will display five of its original Autochromes by Edward Steichen and Alfred Stieglitz for one week only — January 25-30, 2011 — as part of the exhibition Stieglitz, Steichen, Strand.
The future of Fisk University’s priceless art collection donated years ago by artist Georgia O’Keeffe, and known as The Stieglitz Collection, may be decided at a trial set to begin tomorrow after five years of legal wrangling.
The Guerilla Girls caused a big stir in the late 1980s and 90s but now a founding member of the once revolutionary group talks about the Georgia O’Keeffe show, which makes me wonder, “Are they still relevant?”
