Georgia O’Keeffe’s sartorial style became an intimate part of her artistic identity. She dressed like she painted, highly valuing abstraction, simplicity and seriality. This lecture explores the ways she used her distinctive taste in clothes to model for photographers.Together they created a public persona for O’Keeffe that still dominates the American imagination today..

Wanda M. Corn, a leading scholar of American modernism, authored the 1999 award-winning book, The Great American Thing: Modern Art and American Identity, 1915–1935 (1999) and more recently Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern (2017). Her numerous awards include the Distinguished Scholar Award in 2014 from the College Art Association, the learned society for the visual arts. Corn has retired from teaching after nearly three decades at Stanford University and is active professionally as a writer and exhibition curator. Her talk will be drawn from her O’Keeffe book and the PEM exhibition she has curated that features the artist’s clothes.
