Modern Nature: Georgia O'Keeffe and Lake George will examine the extraordinary body of work created by the artist during her stay at Lake George, New York.
From 1918 until the early 1930s, Georgia O’Keeffe lived for part of the year at Alfred Stieglitz’s 36-acre family property situated just north of Lake George Village, along the western shore of this 30-mile-long glacial lake in the Adirondack Mountains. Despite the fact that the Lake George work was critical to Georgia O’Keeffe’s development of her signature style of modernism and abstraction, this is the first major exhibition and publication devoted to this period in her career.
During this highly productive decade, O’Keeffe created more than two hundred paintings on canvas and paper in addition to sketches and pastels, making the Lake George years among the most prolific and transformative of her seven-decade career. The exhibition will include 55 of these works, drawn from public and private collections.
