There are numerous “power couples” in the art world of the early to mid 20th century. Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo come to mind along with Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz. Howard Cook and Barbara Latham may not be the most famous of these pairings, but their marriage and union in art remain one its most adventurous. Philbrook Museum of Art explores the influence each artist exerted over the other’s works as well as their collective contribution to the school of art that formed in Taos, N.M. Their rendered studies of the American Southwest and its cultures in paint and printings are the focus of A Creative Union: Howard Cook & Barbara Latham, a new exhibition opening Sunday, Nov. 2 at Philbrook, 2727 S. Rockford Road, in Tulsa. The show will include about 20 paintings and prints from the 1920 to the ‘50s revealing the couples’ shared experiences and explorations. The exhibit closes Jan. 4.
