Vienna (LCG) – Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986) was one of the founders of American Modernism and a pioneer as an artist. O’Keeffe, alongside Frida Kahlo, is probably the most famous woman artist of the twentieth century, but the opportunities to see her work in Europe are rare; O’Keeffe has as yet never been exhibited in Austria. Her works are distributed throughout the leading US museums and collections and have gained an iconic status there.

In cooperation with the Tate Modern, London, and the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, on 7 December 2016 the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien is opening the hitherto largest O’Keeffe exhibition outside the United States. The presentation includes 85 of O’Keeffe’s works as well as 60 photographs by befriended artists, and with loans from fifty sources the exhibition is offering what is probably a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become acquainted with the painting of this exceptional artist. Among the exhibits is “Jimson Weed/White Flower No 1 (1832), at 35.5 million euros the most expensive picture by a woman ever to be auctioned.
