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. In this lecture, art historian Wanda M. Corn explores the way O’Keeffe used her distinctive taste in clothes to model for photographers, creating a public persona for herself that still dominates the American imagination.

Corn is the Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor Emerita in Art History at Stanford University, where she served as chair of the Department of Art and Art History and acting director of the Stanford Museum. Active as a guest curator, she has produced various books and exhibitions, most recently Women Building History: Public Art at the 1893 Columbian Exposition (2011); Seeing Gertrude Stein: Five Stories (2011–12); and Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern (2017–19, currently on view at the CMA).
