A major exhibition of the work of artist Georgia O'Keeffe opens at the Irish Museum of Modern Art.

The exhibition at IMMA comprises twenty-eight works by the Wisconsin-born artist Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986).

Georgia O'Keeffe's work deals with the transformation of nature into abstract work.

Much of her work is inspired by the landscape of New Mexico where she lived for many years.

Curator of the exhibition Richard Marshall says that Georgia O'Keeffe's success lies in her determination to be individual and not follow trends.

Georgia O'Keeffe, whose grandparents were from Cork, had a career spanning seven decades and is considered one of America's most significant female artists. This is the first time her work has been exhibited in Ireland.

Georgia O'Keeffe is just one of a number of international artists currently being exhibited at IMMA. Others include Alex Katz and Thomas Demand.
