Beginning in the 1910s, when Alfred Stieglitz began making photographs of Georgia O'Keeffe, to the end of her life, in 1986, O'Keeffe was sought out by numerous American photographers, who made her a subject in their work. When The Georgia O'Keeffe Foundation, closed in 2006, the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum was fortunate to receive its collection of photographs of O'Keeffe. On display will be selections of these works, along with other photographs of O'Keeffe from the Museum's collection, taken at various times in her life by photographers such as Ansel Adams, Yousuf Karsh, Alfred Stieglitz, Tony Vaccaro, Todd Webb, and Don Worth.
New Mexico and New York: Photographs of Georgia O'Keeffe was organized by the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. This exhibition and related programming were made possible in part by a generous grant from The Burnett Foundation. Additional support was provided by the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, The Kerr Foundation, the Santa Fe Arts Commission and the 1% Lodgers’ Tax, New Mexico Tourism Department, New Mexico Arts (a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs), the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum’s National Council, and the Members of the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum.
