The Beyond: Georgia O'Keeffe and Contemporary Art at the New Britain Museum of American Art

Enormous flowers, luscious colors, desert landscapes, feminine forms, and still lifes. Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986) pioneered revolutionary ways of visually interpreting the world through her early embrace of abstraction and effusive use of color and is recognized as one of the preeminent American painters of the twentieth century. Drawn from important public and private collections across the country, The Beyond will bring together three dozen iconic works—spanning O’Keeffe’s long career and the full range of her output—as the centerpiece of a unique exploration.
