A Self-Made Icon: Brooklyn Museum to Exhibit Georgia O'Keeffe

The Brooklyn Museum presents Georgia O'Keeffe through a new lens.

Though she's chiefly lauded for her blooming brushstrokes of vibrant petals (many of them famously rife with labia overtones), Georgia O'Keeffe is also remembered for her lasting public persona. From her simple black-and-white ensembles, which characterized her time in New York, to her dusty Southwestern palette, which reflected her move to New Mexico, O'Keeffe progressively and independently crafted her own identity.

With a new exhibit opening in March, the Brooklyn Museum celebrates the artist through her paintings and through portraiture captured by some of the most iconic photographers of our time--Alfred Stieglitz, Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz, and Andy Warhol, to name a few. The resulting tribute is a garden of delights.

Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern opens March 3 and runs through July 23. Click here for more information.
