Really enjoyed the Georgia O'Keeffe exhibition at Tate Modern, London. Whatever your opinions on her themes and style, it seemed to me that the exhibition presented an artist with a genuine voice which stayed fresh and compelling throughout her career. Another sign of a great painter is O'Keeffe's ability to make the most modest compositions (a single flower in a vase, a prune, a few apples) look fresh and appealing.
The exhibition traces O'Keeffe's career from the beautiful charcoal abstract drawings which caught the eye of New York photographer and avant-garde gallery owner Alfred Stieglitz in 1916 (which would mark the start of their 30-year relationship) to her New York period and her discovery of the New Mexico landscape, which became her inspiration for the rest of her career.
The constant mediation and second-guessing O'Keeffe (who did not think of herself and did not want to be considered a 'woman artist') had to endure at the hands of male commentators is a running theme in the show.
The exhibition finishes on Sunday 30 October so there's still time to catch the exhibition this weekend if you're in or around London.
