Jo's Art History Podcast / 35. Georgia O’Keeffe with Joanne Oatts

Listen on

Episode notes

It’s the final episode of season one! 

Yes, after 35 weeks of non-stop art history content, I thought now would be the perfect time to round off season one is style - and I promise we are going out on a high!

On today’s episode I sit down with artist and art historian Joanne Oatts to discuss one of Art History’s most iconic female artists - Georgia O’Keeffe!

O’Keeffe is one of those artists who was all too quickly pigeon holed as a creative who solely painted flowers and that contained highly sexualised undertones. I am happy to report however she is far more than that! Thanks to an continued effort of art historians around the world, as well as a blockbuster exhibition at the Tate Modern in 2016 O’Keeffe’s outpour has been rightly reevaluated showing the artist in all her glory.

Joanne a.k.a. Jo takes us on a whistle stop tour of some of O’Keeffe’s outpour and we discuss 5 works which highlight the varied creative developments of the artist’s life.

O’Keeffe was an absolute powerhouse. Not only as an artist but as a woman and I can think of no better artists to round off season one of the Jo’s Art History Podcast with.

Sit back and relax as Jo and I discuss the amazing Georgia O’Keeffe.
