Georgia O'Keeffe @ Tate Modern

6 July 2016 - 30 October 2016

Georgia O’Keeffe is an American icon and fundamentally important to the history of modernism. She is best known for her paintings of magnified flowers, animal skulls, and New Mexico desert landscapes. Making her debut exactly a century ago, in 1916, she was immediately recognised as a trailblazing artist. The exhibition brings together over 100 of her most important works from six decades of her career, including Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1 1932, the most expensive painting by a female artist ever sold at auction. With no works by O’Keeffe in UK public collections, this is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for audiences outside the US to view the exceptional beauty and skill of her remarkable paintings.
