Georgia O'Keeffe and Ansel Adams — two of America's best-known artists — are both revered for their ability to capture, in their own unique ways, the essence of natural beauty. The two met for the first time in 1929 while in Taos, New Mexico, and despite a 15-year age gap and differing personalities, they developed a lifelong friendship through their shared admiration of the natural world. O'Keeffe and Adams corresponded over the years, visited one another, and sometimes traveled together to sites that became subjects of their artwork. Georgia O'Keeffe and Ansel Adams: Natural Affinities brings together nearly 100 works from the painter and the photographer, revealing the parallels between their distinctive visions of the natural world. An introductory gallery provides a context for their art, with works by contemporaries such as Marsden Hartley, Alfred Stieglitz, and Edward Weston.
