Georgia O'Keeffe: Art, Image, Style


  • Peabody Essex Museum 161 Essex Street Salem, MA, 01970 United States (map)

Georgia O'Keeffe: Art, Image, Style is the first exhibition to explore the art, image, and personal style of one of America’s most iconic artists. O’Keeffe’s understated and carefully designed garments, many never before exhibited, are presented alongside photographs and her paintings, illuminating O’Keeffe’s unified modernist aesthetic and distinctive self-styling.

For more than 70 years, O’Keeffe shaped her public persona, defied labels, and carved out a truly progressive, independent life in order to create her art. Her aesthetic legacy — compact masses, organic silhouettes, minimal ornamentation, and restrained color palettes — continues to capture the popular imagination and inspire leading designers and tastemakers of our day.

Georgia O'Keeffe: Art, Image, Style is organized by the Brooklyn Museum with guest curator Wanda M. Corn, Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor Emerita in Art History, Stanford University, and made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts. Carolyn and Peter S. Lynch, The Lynch Foundation, and Fay, Susan, and Appy Chandler provided generous support. The East India Marine Associates of the Peabody Essex Museum also provided support.
