Modern Nature: Georgia O'Keeffe and Lake George at the de Young Museum
From 1918 until the early 1930s, Georgia O'Keeffe retreated annually to Alfred Stieglitz's family estate on Lake George in upstate New York, where she reveled in the discovery of new subject matter and found respite in the rural setting without the distractions of city life. O'Keeffe's experiences there inspired one of the most transformative and productive periods of her career, energizing the development of her signature modernist style. From magnified botanical compositions to panoramic landscapes, the works in this exhibition offer a deeper understanding of the spirit of place that was essential to O'Keeffe's artistic evolution.
