Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George, at the de Young

M.H. de Young Memorial Museum, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA

Today, my wife and I finally made it to the de Young Museum in San Francisco to see the exhibition, Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George, which ENDS on Sunday, May 11.

A preview of the exhibition is here.

On the “About the Exhibition” page, the de Young has this to say (links are mine):

Organized by the Hyde Collection, in association with the Georgia O’Keeffe MuseumModern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George will examine the extraordinary body of work created by the artist of and 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.

My wife and I both enjoyed the exhibition tremendously. If you are local to the Bay Area and can attend during the last week, I recommend it highly!
