A local artist and celebrity of sorts, Georgia O’Keeffe (b.1887-d.1986) made Santa Fe, NM her home in the 1940s at a place called the Ghost Ranch, which served as a muse for many of her paintings. Her art reflects the majestic beauty of the New Mexico landscape. Her namesake museum houses many of her works along with a collection of photographs taken in the 1960’s by photographers Ansel Adams and her husband, Alfred Stieglitz.
The museum docent took time to share additional information about the O’Keeffe collection and introduced us to an exhibit by Miguel Cavarrubias, another modernism artist, but specializing in caricatures and illustrations. A fascinating collection and legacy for this Mexican artist whom became friends with Georgia O’Keeffe. She advocated his talent and in return escalated his popularity.
Enjoying tales of modernism,
