"The Whitney's colorful show puts aside the Georgia O'Keeffe we know best—the Gray Lady of New Mexico—to retrieve an O'Keeffe we ought to know better, the young woman who went fearlessly down the road of entirely abstract art"
--Time, Top Ten Art Exhibitions of 2009

"The Whitney Museum’s revelatory survey of the work that earned O’Keeffe such derision, the evocative, more-or-less abstract art she made starting in 1915—phenomenally early for an American artist—should reopen eyes to an undeniable fact: O’Keeffe produced some of the most original and ambitious art in the twentieth century."
--New York

"a vivid and surprisingly surprising show"
--The New York Times

"this show reveals a very different side to the famous artist we thought we always knew."
--Time Out New York

"scrapes away O'Keeffe's barnacled legend as the Gray Lady of New Mexico to recall the young woman who at the dawn of abstraction made a fearless leap into the unknown."
