Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) is considered one of the greatest representatives of North American art of the 20th century. A pioneer of abstraction, famous for her paintings of giant flowers, New York skyscrapers, and landscapes of remote New Mexico, she was hailed as the "mother of modern American art." Beyond the artist, María Herreros investigates the deep being of O'Keeffe: a tireless traveler, a lover of nature, a strong and emancipated woman who built her own image and carved her own path.
On the occasion of the first retrospective in Spain of Georgia O'Keeffe, which will last from April 20 to August 8 and that the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza organizes jointly with the Center Pompidou and the Fondation Beyeler, with the collaboration of the Georgia O 'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, María Herreros travels through the life and work of the American painter and delves into the most intimate part of her magnetic personality.
“Georgia O'Keeffe and María Herreros make a perfect tandem. Let us immerse ourselves with them in this story that combines bold decisions and great fears, passionate loves and existential crises, but, above all, a unique look at the reality that has been captured on canvas for posterity ”.
