An expert on the work of Georgia O’Keeffe, she has also published and lectured widely on the artists of the Stieglitz Circle. The lecture focuses on some of the fascinating women painters (Georgia O’Keeffe and Florine Stettheimer), photographers (Anne Brigman and Marjorie Content), and art collectors (Agnes Meyer and Mabel Dodge Luhan) who associated with Alfred Stieglitz and his New York galleries in the first decade of the 20th century.  While few attained the fame of Georgia O’keeffe, each embodied the spirit of “new woman” in forging their own path to professional and personal independence.
