O’Keeffe and New Mexico
James Russell MA (Cantab )
Monday 15 May 2017

James studied history at Pembroke College, Cambridge but was galvanised into writing about art by a lengthy stint selling contemporary paintings and sculpture in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  A passionate advocate of 20th century British painting and design, he writes and lectures widely, has written numerous books on subjects including Paul Nash and Eric Ravilious and has entertained audiences at many venues including the V & A and the National Maritime Museum.

Georgia O’Keeffe was an American painter whose works were highly praised during her life–time.  Her subjects included landscapes, flowers and animal bones and she worked mainly around Lake Georgia, New York and New Mexico and this lecture concentrates on the latter location.  Learn more about this fascinating and talented painter whose name is perhaps not widely recognised in the UK.
