Georgia O' Keeffee, the Power of Colours

Georgia_o_keeffe

  • Making her debut a century ago, in 1916, Georgia O’Keeffe was immediately recognised as a trailblazing artist, while today her legacy as an American art icon , “Mother of American modernism” and a pioneer of twentieth-century art is widely recognised.
  • However, since the early 1920s the vast oil works have been dogged by erotic interpretations and, despite O’Keeffe’s six decades of vigorous denial that her paintings were in any way sexual, it remains a commonly held assumption to this day.
  • Fascinated by art and encouraged by her family, Georgia made her entrance in the world of arts. O’Keeffe mailed a few of her drawings to Anita Pollitzer, a friend and former classmate at Columbia University, who showed the work to Stieglitz, the influential art dealer. A year later, she moved to New York, and Stieglitz found a place for her to live and work. He also provided financial support for her to focus on her art. Realizing their deep connection, the artists fell in love and began an affair. Stieglitz and his wife divorced, and he and O'Keeffe married in 1924.
  • As an artist, Stieglitz, who was 23 years older than O'Keeffe, found in her a muse, taking over 300 photographs of her, including both portraits and nudes. As an art dealer, he championed her work and promoted her career. Inspired by the vibrancy of the modern art movement, she began to experiment with perspective, painting larger-scale close-ups of flowers, the first of which was Petunia No. 2, which was exhibited in 1925, followed by works such as Black Iris (1926) and Oriental Poppies (1928).
  • However, since the early 1920s the vast oil works have been dogged by erotic interpretations and, despite O’Keeffe’s six decades of vigorous denial that her paintings were in any way sexual, it remains a commonly held assumption to this day.
