Immersed in Georgia O’Keeffe. Sunday morning we saw the show at the deYoung in San Francisco. I had heard a docent talk last week and the docent said that the very best day to see the show was Sunday morning. She was absolutely right…fewer people even though it is a very popular exhibit and great visibility.
This show is from before she moved to New Mexico so there are no bleached bones, but I have to say that the images glowed in their presentation…silver frames on pale grey walls. Her works are always smaller than reproduction posters lead you to believe. Her colors were alive and intense.
I had to settle for taking pictures of favorite objects around the museum that they do let you take pictures of. I just love Ruth Asawa’s wire sculptures and we took the time to go up to the observation tower.
