In light of our recent acquisition of Andrea Blum’s work and our future Theresa Bernstein exhibition, we wish a special Happy Birthday Georgia O’Keeffe, just one of the many influential female artists from the 20th Century!
We are thrilled to be adding this compelling piece to our permanent collection!

Ceres, whose name means “creator” was the goddess of agriculture. This lush, decorative and highly detailed painting represents earth, and is part of a series that depicts the four elements.
Landscape with Ceres (Allegory of Earth), 1630s, Landscape by Jan Brueghel the Younger, painter; after figures by Hendrik van Balen, painter. J. Paul Getty Museum.
In honor of the Hudson River and Lay of the Land exhibitions currently hanging in the Phillips, I thought I would show a few of the landscape paintings that are part of our permanent collection and are not currently on display.
Happy birthday Pablo Picasso, born on this day in 1881! Here he is at the age of 25 in his first self-portrait as an artist.
“I look for inspiration in reality. Only reality powers my imagination and gives me new life.” ~Pablo Picasso
