Georgia O'Keeffe (Sun Prairie, Wisconsin 1887 - Santa Fe, New Mexico 1986) was an American modernist painter. She studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Students League in New York. Georgia's first solo show opened at 291 in April 1917. Most of the exhibit were the watercolors from Texas.
Georgia O’Keeffe was devoted to creating imagery that expressed what she called “the wideness and wonder of the world as I live in it.” She was a leading member of one of the avant-garde art movements that blossomed in New York in the 1910s and 1920s. O’Keeffe’s images—often instantly recognizable as her own —include large-scale flowers, New York cityscapes, animal bones, and the high deserts and dramatic cliffs of her beloved New Mexico.
- I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty.
