Georgia O'Keeffe a Life in Art
On the occasion of the most recent Georgia O’Keeffe retrospective, organized by the Tate Modern, ArtNexus presents this short documentary on the life and work of the artist (1887-1986), one of the earliest modern artists in the United States.

The video follows the chronology of O’Keeffe’s life, with especial emphasis on her life in New Mexico and the important role played by Alfred Stiegletz in the promotion of her work. Stiegletz, a renowned photographer of the period, started a commercial relationship with O’Keeffe that later became a romantic liaison. Yet, O’Keeffe’s work was misinterpreted after the publication of some intimate pictures of her in a Stieigletz retrospective. This caused an erroneous reading of her art and drove her towards more representative works.
