Ida O’Keeffe: Escaping Georgia’s Shadow

Dallas Museum of Art

18 Nov 2018 - 24 Feb 2019

Ida O’Keeffe is said to have told her more illustrious sister: ‘I’d be famous, too, if I’d have had a Stieglitz.’ Presenting some 40 of Ida’s paintings and etchings, this exhibition – the first proper survey of her work – takes us from her powerful early realist paintings of the 1920s to the mode of abstraction she developed in the ’30s – and also explores her thwarted ambition. A number of Alfred Stieglitz’s portraits of Ida from the 1920s are also on display. Find out more about the Ida O’Keeffe exhibition from the Dallas Museum of Art’s website.
