The exhibition opened in September 2012 at the Montclair Museum in New Jersey, and was reviewed by New York Times writer Martha Schwendener on January 6, who wrote: “And so ‘Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico’ includes not only a number of rich landscapes, but also drawings and paintings that delve into some of the central issues and controversies of modernism.
