The Girl Who Left, The Woman Who Stayed: Finding Georgia O’Keeffe in a Small Southern Town

I can’t justify it, but sometimes I dream of purchasing an old house on the street where my mother lived as a child, vaguely believing that if I did I might come to understand something deeper about myself. Or perhaps I might come to feel at home, a feeling I crave after years of living in New England, far away from the small Carolina town where I was raised.

Georgia O’Keeffe, behind the lens

ANDOVER — Should it surprise that, in an exhibition of Georgia O’Keeffe’s photographs, there are nearly as many pictures of her as by her? Maybe a little, but not really. O’Keeffe long ago transcended the simple job description of artist for the broader label of cultural icon, drawing scrutiny — and mostly adoration — for everything from her fashion choices to her home decor to her culinary panache (”Dinner with Georgia O’Keeffe,” with 50 of her recipes, was published in 2017). With O’Keeffe, it can be all too easy to be hyper-aware of her fame without knowing exactly what she’s famous for.

Georgia O’Keeffe, Gabriella Crespi, and More: Art and Design’s Leading Ladies Inspire This Season’s Collection Debuts

Multiple design brands have turned to pioneering women artists and designers to inspire new collections launching this spring. During Women’s History Month and beyond, these eclectic bodies of new work serve as reminders of legacy figures whose output merits ongoing study, exploration, and celebration. The ways in which that can happen prove to be exciting and surprising, as demonstrated in five timely cases below.

Georgia O’Keeffe, Photographer at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

Georgia O’Keeffe spent 30 years with the legendary American photographer Alfred Stieglitz. She worked alongside him, posed for him, and even spotted prints for him. But she knew not a lick about taking photographs. “Stieglitz used to say I knew less about photography than anybody he ever knew,” she told a journalist in 1962. “Yet, he’d trust my judgment of a print.” No doubt she’d laugh to see herself newly proclaimed as Georgia O’Keeffe, Photographer, the title of an exhibit now on view at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH).

Georgia O’Keeffe, Photographer? A New Exhibit Reveals A Hidden Talent Of A Legendary Painter

“I have been much photographed,” mused Georgia O’Keeffe in 1922. As the favorite model of the legendary photographer Alfred Stieglitz, she was often in front of the camera, and would continue to be a frequent photographic subject following their marriage two years later. By the time of Stieglitz’s death in 1946, O’Keeffe was the focus of some three hundred and thirty of his photographs, ranging from nudes to formal portraits.

A Different Light: ‘Georgia O’Keeffe, Photographer’ at the MFAH

Art scholarship doesn’t always provide a revelatory shift in understanding of a masterful artist, but sometimes the historical ground breaks with a bit of museum inventory housekeeping and a casual chat between colleagues.

Now the world will also view O’Keeffe in a different light and see a trove of her recently discovered photographic art in the MFAH exhibition Georgia O’Keeffe, Photographer, running through Jan. 17.

Georgia O’Keeffe: A Woman on Paper

Women’s History Month is March. Georgia O’Keeffe: A Woman on Paper airs Monday, March 1 at 10:30 p.m. Artist Georgia O’Keeffe has been called the “Mother of American Modernism,” well-known for her flowing, colorful works depicting flowers and plants, dramatic cityscapes and Southwestern landscapes. This film highlights the artist’s career while focusing on the little-known story of O’Keeffe’s time spent in Columbia, S.C. as an art instructor at Columbia College. While teaching at the college in the fall of 1915 and the spring of 1916, O’Keeffe found her voice with a series of innovative black and white abstract charcoal drawings that represented a radical break with tradition and led her art in a new direction. Collectively titled “Specials,” the charcoal drawings made O’Keeffe one of the very first American artists to practice pure abstraction, and they would go on to define and establish her career as one of the country’s leading artists.
