Art lovers' alert! The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is presenting the final and only North American stop for a major retrospective of the American artist Georgia O'Keeffe (1887–1986). The exhibition began its run at the Tate Modern in London, England, after which it landed at the Bank Austria Kunstforum in Vienna, Austria.
Now, AGO in Toronto offers this new perspective on the trailblazing figure. According to the gallery, this will also mark the largest and most significant exhibition of the artist's work ever presented in Canada with more than 80 works, including two paintings exclusive to the AGO's presentation (Apr. 22 – July 30, 2017).
"While Georgia O'Keeffe is most widely recognized for her iconic paintings of flowers and skulls, this exhibition takes visitors on a journey spanning six decades of her prolific career, introducing audiences to her abstract paintings that defined her career," says AGO curator Georgiana Uhlyarik. "This retrospective delves beyond the public persona to present O'Keeffe in a new light, and encourages visitors to discover O'Keeffe as she saw herself."
But, the artist's inspiration came from her surroundings. Click through for our trip through O'Keeffe country – Santa Fe, New Mexico.
