Arthur Wesley Dow – O’Keeffe’s Greatest Teacher

ID : 83993   
« back to classes page
Dow was an excellent painter, pioneering printmaker, and noted photographer whose works are in the Art Institute of Chicago as well as other collections. Dow wrote Composition – the foremost book for art training from the early 1900s till the 1940’s. He taught such notable artists as Max Weber and photographer Laurence Coburn but forever remains in the shadow of his most famous student, Georgia O’Keeffe. We will explore Dow’s life and artistic career, including his images of New Mexico. We will explore how Dow’s studies in pre-1900 Paris and involvement in the anti-academic modernism movement both shaped his famous students as well as our view of art to this day.
