Georgia O’Keeffe:
A Woman on Paper

 

Artist Georgia O’Keeffe has been called the “Mother of American Modernism,” well-known for her flowing, colorful works depicting flowers and plants, dramatic cityscapes and Southwestern landscapes. This documentary highlights the artist’s career while focusing on the little-known story of O’Keeffe’s time spent in Columbia, S.C. as an art instructor at Columbia College in 1915-16. O’Keeffe produced a series of black and white abstract charcoal drawings that represented a radical break with tradition and led her art – and her career – in a new direction.
