From 1918 until the early 1930s, Georgia O’Keeffe made regular visits to the family estate of Alfred Stieglitz at Lake George in upstate New York, where she reveled in the discovery of new subject matter and found respite in the rural setting without the distractions of city life. O’Keeffe’s experiences there inspired one of the most transformative and productive periods of her career, energizing the development of her signature modernist style.

This lecture mainly examines the evidence that suggests Maya priest-astronomers carefully watched the planet Venus, clocking its motion to an accuracy of better than two hours in five centuries, all without the advantage of the technologies we have today.
