Georgia O'Keeffe has come to London, like a bracing American desert wind rippling the River Thames.The exhibition also offers O'Keeffe the pioneering abstract artist, O'Keeffe the surrealist and O'Keeffe who painted New York as well as New Mexico.Cody Hartley, director of curatorial affairs at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, says the Tate show is "the most important O'Keeffe exhibition in a generation". O'Keeffe, who had her first major exhibition a century ago and died in 1986 aged 98, had an exceptionally long career.Flowers are certainly prominent in Tate's exhibition, which has borrowed extensively from the O'Keeffe Museum and other North American collections.In New Mexico, images of flowers were replaced by animal skulls, which O'Keeffe rendered beautiful rather than macabre.
