    Georgia O'Keeffe: Works from the Brooklyn Museum

    Press Releases ?
    • February 1989: The Brooklyn Museum will celebrate the arrival of six works by the artist Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) with a special installation opening March 3. The five paintings and one pastel were bequeathed to the Museum by the renowned American 20th-century-painter. Georgia O’Keeffe: Works from The Brooklyn Museum, an exhibition of 12 works that comprise the Museum’s holdings by the artist, will be shown in the Prints and Drawings Galleries, located on the second floor, through June 19, 1989.

      The Museum’s holdings by O’Keeffe, which have doubled with the bequest, provide a survey, in miniature, of the major themes that concerned the artist for more than four decades. The collection now ranges from a remarkable series of early watercolor abstractions dated 1916 to Green, Yellow and Orange, a painting from the bequest dated 1960.

      The other works in the bequest are Yellow Leaves, 1928; Rib and Jawbone, 1935; Fishhook from Hawaii No. 1, 1939; Dark Tree Trunks, 1946; and one pastel, Red Hills with the Pedernal, 1936.

      The installation was organized by Barbara Dayer Gallati, Associate Curator of American Painting and Sculpture at the Museum.

      "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"

      The Brooklyn Museum Archives maintains a collection of historical press releases. Many of these have been scanned and made available on our Web site. The releases range from brief announcements to extensive articles; images of the original releases have been included for your reference.
