Ida O'Keeffe: Escaping Georgia's Shadow

Opens July 4, 2019
Ida Ten Eyck O’Keeffe (1889–1961) was a talented American modernist, whose paintings and prints of the 1920s and 1930s explore realism and abstraction in the service of a distinctive artistic style. Yet the fact that her older sister was the renowned Georgia O’Keeffe begins to explain why most people have not heard of her. On view at the Clark July 4–October 6, 2019, Ida O’Keeffe: Escaping Georgia’s Shadow assesses Ida’s work and life, including her training, technique, and travels—as well as the sisters’ sibling rivalry, prompted by Georgia’s interest in being the only painter in the family.
