35. Georgia O’Keeffe with Joanne Oatts

By Jo McLaughlin

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.
