Modern Nature – Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George (de Young Museum)
March 2014 – Closely following the success of “David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition,” works focus on the years O’Keeffe spent visiting photographer and future husband Alfred Stieglitz’s family estate (1918-1930). First displayed in 2013 at the little known Hyde Collection, the exhibition attracted the attention of the NY Times’ Jesse McKinley who notes, “It’s an exhibition- drawn from more than three dozen collections- that its organizers hope will undeniably establish a connection between O’Keeffe and the lake” (located in upstate NY). Although sometimes resentful of her frequent feminist classification, the artist was the first woman to have a solo retrospective at MoMA in 1946. O’Keeffe (left, in 1918) as photographed by Alfred Stieglitz prior to her better known years in New Mexico. Works on display through May 11, 2014 at the de Young, San Francisco.
