From 1918 until the early 1930s, Georgia O'Keeffe retreated regularly to Alfred Stieglitz's family estate on Lake George in upstate New York, where she reveled in the discovery of new subject matter and found respite in the rural setting without the distractions of city life. The escape proved critical to O'Keeffe's development of her signature style of modernism and abtraction, from magnified botanical compositions to panoramic landscapes. Develop a deeper understanding of the spirit of the place that was essential to the iconic artist's evolution with this exhibition of 55 works created during her time at Lake George.
