One hundred years ago, Georgia O’Keeffe made her formal New York City debut. O’Keeffe had been exhibited there before, but it was only a soft launch, and done without her participation. On January 29, 1923, 100 artworks—six years’ worth—were put on public display at the Anderson Galleries. Not only did this exhibit secure O’Keeffe’s artistic reputation, it also set the annual pattern of her work life for the next 23 years. In this presentation, take a look inside the exhibition at the Anderson Galleries, as well as newspaper reviews and O’Keeffe’s accompanying artist statement. Dr. Daly will explore what the exhibit meant for the artist—personally, artistically, and financially; its effect on her health; her deep ambivalence about being exhibited; and her strategic response to criticism.

Left: Three conical green trees rise up from the base of the work and extend into the central and left portions of the piece. In the center of the image, a rounded tree with a yellowish center emerges above the green trees. Behind the central red tree and to the right, a narrower, rounded red tree can also be seen. The sky, visible in the upper corners of the work, is a dark blue. Right: A version of the same painting but where the green and red pigments are muted into golden brown.
