The Georgia O’Keeffe 10th Episode Spectacular!

Art Crime Podcast | Season 1, Episode 10

It’s the Art Crime Podcast 10th Episode Spectacular! Starring Georgia O’Keeffe, George Clooney, Boris Johnson, Pierneef, Arthur Wesley Dow, featuring Alfred Stieglitz, and as always your hosts, Mara and Baker! We celebrate Georgia O’Keeffe’s amazing life and career, we roll our eyes at Alfred Stieglitz, and everyone is pretty tired of people referencing vagina in her flower paintings. In the news, we side with George Clooney and agree it’s probably a good time for the Elgin marbles to be returned to Athens, and then we discover and fall in love with the paintings of South African artist Pierneef after reading about secretary-general Ace Magashule’s former bodyguard’s theft of a Pierneef painting. And finally, the case of the Georgia O’Keefe painting thefts in 2004 and the sad ending for a former museum employee and desperate opportunist. This didn’t turn out great for anyone.
