Meet the mother of American Modernism.
Georgia O'Keeffe, the artist often described as the mother of American Modernism, along with her Australian contemporaries Margaret Preston and Grace Cossington Smith, will be the subject of a four-month exhibition at the Queensland Art Gallery.
Running from Saturday, March 11 through to June 11 at the gallery in Stanley Place, O'Keeffe, Preston, Cossington Smith: Making Modernism has been curated by the team at Queensland Art Gallery along with Santa Fe's Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Melbourne's Heide, and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and will feature more than 30 works by each of the three women created across the length of their respective careers. In doing so, it will showcase both the distinctive styles developed by the artists, as well as the similarities in their subject matter, technique and the ways in which they viewed the world.
