PLACE at the Centre Pompidou (Paris 4th)
The first retrospective in France of Georgia O'Keeffe (1887 ? 1986)
- Georgia O'Keeffe (1887 ? 1986), is one of the greatest figures of North American art of the 20th century. In the United States, she is a legend and was the first woman to be exhibited at the MoMA in New York
- The Georgia O'Keeffe exhibition at Centre Pompidou offers a complete course thanks to a hundred paintings, drawings and photographs
- The exhibition route is free, with no obligation to follow a thematic or chronological route. Only the first room is chronological with the evocation of the artist's beginnings in New York around 1914
- Then let yourself be guided by the colors and themes. You will see the first "cosmic" vertigo inspired by the vastness of the Texas plains in 1910, the metropolises and rural landscapes of New York State in the 1920s and 1930s, and the power of nature in New Mexico, where she settled permanently after the Second World War
- Georgia O'Keeffe's work is very close to nature. Children will appreciate her use of color and will particularly appreciate her paintings of flowers which made her famous and the plant inspiration which is a recurring motif of the artist.
