Georgia O'Keeffe

1 July-30 Oct. Underlining the fact that there are no Georgia O'Keeffe works in British public collections, the Tate Modern describes its exhibition as a "rare opportunity to see over 100 remarkable paintings by this pioneer of 20th-century art."

O’Keeffe (1887-1986) is best known for her depictions of enlarged flowers and animal skulls, New York skyscrapers and New Mexico desert scapes.

A highlight of the London show includes Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1 1932, which set the record for the most expensive painting by a female artist ever sold at auction when it was bought by Walmart heiress Alice B. Walton for $44.4 million at Sotheby's New York in 2014.

Sun-Thurs 10.00-18.00. Fri-Sat 10.00-22.00
