Georgia O’Keeffe (1888-1986) is well known for her paintings of enlarged flower forms, sculptural desert landscapes and stark natural elements interpreted with great freedom ranging from precise realism to poetic abstraction. This “paring down” to essential shapes and forms characterized not only her art, but her dress as well. This lecture-presentation will examine the continuity of stylistic characteristics and the deliberate links that Georgia O’Keeffe made between her art, her personal wardrobe, and her “signature style.”
