Arthur Wesley Dow was a painter, printmaker, writer, and the leading art teacher in the United States when Georgia O’Keeffe came to New York to study with him in 1914. His book Composition transformed art education in this country and she was eager to learn directly from him. Their disparate styles converged in their appreciation for the spiritual and compositional integrity within their art and one of Dow’s greatest legacy’s is the way he taught O’Keeffe — and many other artists — to “see.” This talk will introduce audiences to Dow and his work and the lessons he passed on to his gifted student.

Presented by Nancy E. Green, Gale and Ira Drukier Curator of European and American Art, Prints, and Drawings, Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University
