It takes time to see, to redefine, to perceive. Nothing is immediate and everything needs to progress, to define itself. As the artist Georgia O’Keeffe wrote: “To see takes time”.
From April 9 to August 12 2023, MOMA present a first exhibition conceived to reunite O’Keeffe’s works on paper made in series. More than 120 works from 85 lenders. It was the 1946 when the Museum of Modern Art planned a show to O’Keeffe.
“Georgia O’Keeffe: To See Takes Time” in New York point out her extraordinary series of works in watercolor, pencil, charcoal and pastel.
Along O’Keeffe’s carrier, between 1915 and 1918, she made many works on paper continuing in the next four decades, in abstract charcoals called specials, strong lines, explicit nudes and living landscape.
Painting and working on paper has allowed the American artist to learn and implement the rhythms of nature and not just the forms.
