1pm Guest Lecture: Georgia O’Keeffe’s Modern Nature, Erin Coe, Chief Curator, The Hyde Collection, Glens Falls, NY
Erin Coe, curator of Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George, will examine the seminal influence O'Keeffe's Lake George experiences had on the pioneering modernist's art and life. From 1918 to 1934, Lake George served as a rural retreat for the artist and provided the basic material for her art. O'Keeffe drew from the spirit of this place as she developed her modern approach to portraying the natural world. In this illustrated lecture, Coe will explore the full range of work and the major themes that marked this formative and productive time in O’Keeffe’s career.
