Podcast 68: Georgia O’Keeffe—The Context of Bones

Georgia O’Keeffe, Part Three

Liberated from the steel canyons of the skyscraper-lined avenues of New York City, Georgia O’Keeffe found “her country” in New Mexico. Here the painter found new vistas—the extraordinary landscapes of the Southwest—and unique motifs—the bleached bones of cattle and sheep. This podcast discusses the unexpected link between O’Keeffe and the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, as evidenced by her iconic paintings of the American West.
