Photo of Georgia O'Keeffe, taken at the Peobody Essex Museum
In January, I visited an exhibit called, Art, Image and Style, an excellent showing of Georgia O'Keeffe's life, art work and clothes. I wrote a blog about this visit, and you'll be able to see the pictures at: Georgia O'Keeffe, The Website was a Gem, and Oh Her Clothes. At the time I wrote my blog, I always try to do some research on the topic prior to posting. Naturally, I checked out the website for the Georgia O'Keeffe museum. One of the things that interested me the most was the Timeline of her life, something genealogists should do, I believe. Both of my parents have the Ten Eyck line, and one has the Wyckoff line, both names mentioned in the first timeline entry for 1887. I felt I needed to share this information for all who might be interested.
So, since January, I've been trying to get up the nerve to call the museum to ask for permission to use their work on this blog. I finally called last week. It was easier than I expected, because all I had to do was write a letter and explain why I wanted permission. In less than 24 hours, I had my answer. All I had to do is give credit, well naturally, I will and have. To see their original timeline, see: https://www.okeeffemuseum.org/about-georgia-okeeffe/timeline/
