Explore 1,100 Works of Art by Georgia O’Keeffe: They’re Now Digitized and Free to View Online

Lake George Reflection (circa 1921) via Wikimedia Commons What comes to mind when you think of Georgia O’Keeffe? Bleached skulls in the desert? Aerial views of clouds, almost cartoonish in their puffiness? Voluptuous flowers (freighted with an erotic charge the artist may not have intended)? Probably not Polaroid prints of a dark haired pet chow sprawled on flagstones… Or watercolor sketches of demurely pretty ladies... Or a massive cast iron abstraction… If your knowledge of America’s most cel...

How Georgia O’Keeffe Became Georgia O’Keeffe: An Animated Video Tells the Story

When Georgia O’Keeffe first saw the home in Abiquiú, in Northern New Mexico that she would purchase from the Catholic Church in 1945 “the 5,000-square-foot compound was in ruins,” writes the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. The artist immediately seized on its potential: “As I climbed and walked about in the ruin,” she remembers, “I found a patio with a very pretty well house and bucket to draw up water. It was a good-sized patio with a long wall with a door on one side. That wall with a door in...

An Interactive Social Network of Abstract Artists: Kandinsky, Picasso, Brancusi & Many More

Who's your favorite abstract artist? Some of us, if we like early abstraction, might name a painter like Wassily Kandinsky, some a composer like Arnold Schoenberg, some a poet like Guillaume Apollinaire, and some, even, a photographer like Alfred Stieglitz. When we answer a question like this, we tend to consider each artist, and each artist's body of work, in isolation. But when we talk about artistic movements, especially one overarching and influential as abstraction, all names, all painting...

'Shape of Light' Shines in the Space Where Photographic Art Bleeds into Wider Art

None From May to October 2018, the Tate Modern in London presented an exhibition titled Shape of Light: 100 Years of Photography and Abstract Art, examining relationships between abstraction in fine art and photographic practice. The exhibition featured an array of photographs curated for the show, with relevant examples of abstract art from the Tate's collection. The book, Shape of Light, serves as the companion volume to that exhibition. A generous collection of reproduced photographs, colou...

Download 50,000 Art Books & Catalogs from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Digital Collections

If you’ve lived in or visited New York City, you must know the laughable futility of trying to “do the Met” in a day, or even a weekend. Not only is the museum enormous, but its permanent collections demand to be studied in detail, an activity one cannot rush through with any satisfaction. If you’re headed there for a special exhibit, be especially disciplined—make a beeline and do not stop to linger over elaborate Edo-period samurai armor or austere Shaker-made furniture. I thought I’d learned...

5,000+ Photographs by Minor White, One of the 20th Century’s Most Important Photographers, Now Digitized and Available Online

Barn + Corn (Vicinity of Dansville, New York), 1955. From The Minor White Archive, Princeton University Art. When the photographer Minor White died in 1976, after a prolific career and an epic journey of a life, he left his archives to Princeton University. But it took about forty years before that institution could make the collection truly available to the world in the form of the Minor White Archive online. He became "one of the most important photographic artists of the twentieth century" a...

There is No Such Thing as Image Quality

There is no such thing as "image quality" in expressive photography. There are only properties. This might seem counter-intuitive, or argumentative, or even subversive. Many people who are happily engaged in the discussion about technical properties have fully integrated the term "image quality" and know what they mean by it. But quality is subjective. Only by first agreeing which properties to value can something be said to have quality. Even if that agreement is implicit or it ver...

Required Reading: How They Decorated, Inspiration from Great Women of the 20th Century

Flicking through a vintage magazine can start well: the fabulous cover, the glamorous ads. But all too soon attention wanders, until finally—color!—in the form of wonderful photos of the freshly decorated home of someone with six names. Fortunately, the renowned blogger and design detective P. Gaye Tapp has done the hard work for us, collecting her findings from a lifetime of magazine flicking in a charming book: How They Decorated: Inspiration from Great Women of the 20th Century.

20 Times That Trains Inspired Great Photographers

Trains have been a recurrent subject in the arts. Narrative, illustration, painting, poetry, photography and film have taken trains as a subject several times. It is no surprise that trains and cameras have gotten along so well since they were both born almost at par and have contributed things to humanity that many thought were impossible during the time. Trains allowed riders to travel great distances at speeds never experienced before, and cameras allowed them to capture scenes at astonishing...

Download 36 Dadaist Magazines from the The Digital Dada Archive (Plus Other Avant-Garde Books, Leaflets & Ephemera)

In searching for a treasure trove of publications springing from the avant-garde, deliberately irrational, early 20th-century European "anti-art" art movement known as Dada, where would you first look? Many corners of the world's historic cultural capitals may come right to mind, but might we suggest the University of Iowa? Even if you don't feel like traveling to the middle of the United States to plunge into an archive of highly purposeful nonsense, you can view their impressive collection of...

Marcel Duchamp’s most political work of art

A hundred years ago last month, two of the most influential historical events of the twentieth century occurred within a span of three days. The first of these took place on 6 April 1917, when the United States declared war on Germany and, in doing so, thrust the USA into a leading role on the world stage for the first time in its history. America and American foreign policy would be forever changed as the nation tasted imperial grandeur it would never again relinquish. War led to the passage of...

15 amazing things about New Mexico

ANYONE WHO’S BEEN to New Mexico can tell you there’s no place like it on Earth, but they probably won’t be able to tell you exactly why. I could explain how we have deserts like Arizona, mountains like Colorado, and those neon southwestern sunsets — but New Mexican landscapes and cultures have a feel that just can’t be described or photographed. It’s one of those things you have to experience firsthand. People who’ve been to New Mexico just get it. That’s why we lovingly refer to it as the “Land...

Want To Celebrate A Urinal's 100th Birthday? You'll Need This Secret Password.

One hundred years ago, a man named Marcel Duchamp changed the course of art. All it took was a pseudonym, a urinal and a penchant for sticking it to the man. But mostly, the urinal.  On April 9, 1917, the French-born Duchamp anonymously submitted an artwork for consideration to an exhibition hosted by the so-called Society of Independent Artists in New York. Being an open show without a jury, the expectation was that his work, whatever it may be, would be accepted as long as the artist paid the...

The Alfred Stieglitz Collection at the AIC

Reviewed by Kenneth Tanaka As anyone who has studied any art or photography history probably knows, Alfred Stieglitz was perhaps the most prominent early figure in getting photography admitted into the world of art. As a somewhat elitist, self-anointed connoisseur and relentless promoter of photography (and other modernist works) Stieglitz became point-man for the medium in the influential American East coast art world. What you may not know about Stieglitz is that he also became a major art col...

31 Crazy Lifetime Movies That Are Actually Based On True Stories

There are very few people on the fence about Lifetime movies. Either you love to sit down to a night of grisly murders and teens in terrible danger of being kidnapped or trying pot, or you don't. And for true Lifetime movie fans, nothing is more exciting than a film that promises it was "based on a true story."Because lets face it, if Lifetime was interested in your true story, it wasn't just violent or salacious. It was weird. Super weird, with some twists that make you shudder, and some that ...

Download Influential Avant-Garde Magazines from the Early 20th Century: Dadaism, Surrealism, Futurism & More

“I’m tired of politics, I just want to talk about my art,” I sometimes hear artists—and musicians, actors, writers, etc.—say. And I sometimes see their fans say, “you should shut up about politics and just talk about your art.” Given the current onslaught of political news, commentary, scandal, and alarm, these are both understandable sentiments. But anyone who thinks that art and politics once occupied separate spheres harbors a historically naïve belief. The arts have always been political,...

The Sartorial Genius Of Georgia O'Keeffe

The great American painter Georgia O’Keeffe flooded canvases with color, conjuring plants and sunsets and lakes with a generous relationship to her palette. At the mere mention of her name, images of flowers surely come to mind, their petals spread open in front of the viewer, each stamen and stigma brushed with heavy doses of gold or pink or green. Yet images of the artist herself, who was born in 1887 in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, are mostly devoid of color. She preferred to memorialize herself ...

Eliot Porter Photograph Of His Son

Harvard medical researcher Eliot Porter took this photo of his son Jonathan enjoying some tummy time in 1938, the year he had his first exhibition at Alfred Stieglitz's 291 Gallery in New York. In 1939, he decided to become a photographer full time. This print was made in the 1950s. And thus history shows us, it's not exploiting your kids for marketable content that's the problem, it's doing it well. Bloggers and sponsored Insta moms, take note.

Ansel Adams…The Photography Legend Ansel Adams was an American Photographer and Environmentalist who was born in San Francisco on the 20th of February, 1902 and made his first trip to the Yosemite in 1916. The first camera he owned was the Kodak No. 1 Box Camera and he published his first photographic portfolio in 1927.

Ansel Adams, Photographer: 1958 Documentary Captures the Creative Process of the Iconic American Photographer1

America has specialized in both the beautiful and the terrible, inspiring awe of every positive and negative variety. That goes for both the human achievements that have happened there as well of the natural environments they’ve happened in and around, both of which define America equally and have made it the kind of place the word sublime, mixing in as it does a tinge of fear with admiration, was coined to describe.

The History of Photography in Five Animated Minutes: From Camera Obscura to Camera Phone

We find ourselves, still early in the 21st century, in an unprecedented era in the history of photography. The consumers of the developed world have, of course, had access to cameras of their own for decades and decades, but now almost each and every one of us walks around with a camera in our pocket. When a particular landscape, building, animal, human being, or other sight strikes our fancy, we capture it without a moment’s hesitation — and, often, without having given a moment’s thoug...

Fine Art Photography – What It Is and How You Do It

Fine art photography is an elusive term. Photography has become universally available and anyone with a camera can start snapping pictures and calling them art photos. Is there really such a thing as art rich photography? Digital cameras have changed the way we take pictures, leaving more room for quantity rather than quality. We often hear people calling themselves fine art photographers, but let’s look into this and try to establish a definition for this type of photography. Is Photography F...

Download Alfred Stieglitz’s Proto-Dada Art Journal, 291, The First Art Magazine That Was Itself a Work of Art (1916)

You’ve likely heard a good deal recently—especially if you hang around these parts—about the 100th anniversary of Dada, supposedly begun when poet and Cabaret Voltaire owner Hugo Ball penned his manifesto in 1916 and began disseminating the ideas of the nascent anti-art movement. This makes a convenient origin story, as they say in the comics, and helps us contextualize the avant-garde explosion that followed. But, historically speaking, there is no such thing as creation ex nihilo, and the beg...

Photographer Bill Cunningham (RIP) on Living La Vie Boheme Above Carnegie Hall

New York City lost some of its charm this weekend, with the news that Bill Cunningham, the Times’ beloved, on-the-street fashion photographer, had passed away at the age of 87. Much has been made over the fact that he was designated a living landmark by the New York Landmarks Conservancy. It’s an honor he earned, hitting the streets daily in his usual mufti of khakis, sneakers, and bleu de travail cotton jacket to hunt his quarry by bicycle, but one could never accuse him of courting it.
