|Black Place II - Georgia O'Keeffe|
Neither had I heard of Mabel Dodge Lujan who first brought O'Keeffe to the Land of Enchantment and who was an interesting character in her own right.
People like Lujan and O'Keefe make today's feminists seem tame and domesticated, just as many radicals of the past make today's seem clueless and timid. I think America having gone through the McCarthy and Reagan eras almost back to back and then immediately coming under the domination of Neoliberal Capitalism might have something to do with it.
Prodger mentions a couple other artists who like O'Keeffe were legends in their own time but whose artistic ability didn't always live up to their reputation -- he mentions Frieda Kahlo as one where it didn't-- whereas in some cases, he contends, as with Picasso and Georgia O'Keeffe, it did.
