Georgia O’Keeffe. Centre Pompidou
Georgia O’Keeffe (1887 – 1986), one of the greatest figures in 20th century North American art.
Hundred paintings, drawings and photographs, the exhibition proposes a complete review of Georgia O’Keefe artistic career. In the 1920s she belonged to the limited circle of the inventors of American modernism, then participated in the 1930s in the quest for identity that marked the United States, before becoming a pioneer of hard edge abstract painting in the 1960s.
In addition to the paintings of flowers that made her reputation, the Georgia O’Keeffe exhibition in the Centre Pompidou Paris showcases the complexity and iconographic richness of her work. From the skyscrapers of New York and the barns of Lake George to the cattle bones she brought back from her rambles in the Indian deserts.
