Explore the work of groundbreaking modernist Georgia O’Keeffe, known for her unique approach to depicting nature.

Though best known as a painter, drawing was central to the practice of American modernist Georgia O’Keeffe. This exhibition showcases 21 ‘photogravures’ – a printmaking process that produces etchings with the tone and detail of a photograph through exposure onto a copper plate – of drawings produced by the artist during the period she became established as a major figure in American Modernism, 1915-1963.

O’Keeffe’s innovative approach to depicting nature remains a huge part of her legacy – here we see examples of her abstract drawings of flowers, animal bones and shells, charting the key motifs she returned to time and time again throughout her career.

One of the first women to receive major recognition on the New York art scene at the time, Georgia O’Keeffe led the way for the modern artists that followed in her footsteps – see nine of her earliest charcoal drawings alongside beautiful works in pencil and watercolour and explore a truly distinctive style.
