ABOUT THE EVENT
Georgia O'Keeffe: Reading the Life as the Work with Roxana Robinson
The New Britain Museum of American Art welcomes famed writer and biographer Roxana Robinson to discuss how the various elements of Georgia O’Keeffe’s life are reflected in her artwork. Robinson will explore the significant formal influences along with the equally important personal and emotional sources of her art. O’Keeffe’s art education and exposure to Modernism influenced her work as much as her background coming from a frontier family, the powerful and complicated relationship she had with Alfred Stieglitz, and her deep, abiding feelings for landscape.
Roxana Robinson is the author of five novels, three story collections, and the award-winning biography, Georgia O’Keeffe: A Life, which was named a Notable Book of the Year by The New York Times. She has written for The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The New York Times and other publications, and is also the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation. Her most recent book is the biographical novel, Dawson’s Fall.
Georgia O’Keeffe: A Life is available for sale at the Museum Shop. Robinson will sign books after her talk.
