Georgia O'Keeffe and her unique artistic vision Bernard Allan Wednesday 11 September 2019

Georgia O’Keeffe abandoned her teaching career to eventually become one of America’s most popular artists, with an international reputation. She is best-known for her dramatic and sometimes controversial pictures of flowers. Her legacy of some 900 paintings also embraces New York’s skyscrapers, her almost abstract treatment of Lake George’s landscape and the sun-bleached animal bones depicted against the rugged New Mexico landscape. 

Following a successful business career, Bernard Allan spent several years teaching art history and is now an independent art history tutor. He specialises in the work of Women Artists and also American Art. He has lectured widely to local organisations and guided parties around art galleries in London and Paris.
