Georgia O'Keeffe: Magnificent Watercolour Studies

A beautiful new book from Radius Books; Georgia O’Keeffe: Watercolours 1916-1918, is out later this month, published by Radius Books.

At the same time, a must see exhibition of her work until 30 October in the Tate Modern. A rare opportunity to see over 100 remarkable paintings by this pioneer of twentieth-century art.

Georgia O’Keeffe is best known for her paintings of magnified flowers, animal skulls, and New Mexico desert landscapes. This exhibition brings together some of her most important works, including Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1 1932, the most expensive painting by a female artist ever sold at auction.

Making her debut a century ago, in 1916, O’Keeffe was immediately recognised as a trailblazing artist, while today her legacy as an American art icon and a pioneer of twentieth-century art is widely recognised. This exhibition is a rare chance to see the beauty and skill of her remarkable paintings outside the US.

“Men put me down as the best woman painter… …I think I’m one of the best painters”. Georgia O’Keeffe

Georgia O’Keeffe: Watercolours 1916-1918 is out later this month, published by Radius Books. Must see exhibition of Georgia O’keeffe in the Tate Modern until 30 October
