Widely considered one of the greatest 20th-century American artists, painter Georgia O'Keeffe created serene works to reflect the world around her. Close-up flowers, a signature motif, are so magnified that the petals and blooms become abstracted into sweeping shapes and swaths of color. A celebrated icon herself, O'Keeffe carved out her own style apart from the chaotic modern art scene of the time and paved the way for many women artists to come. She was also known for her complicated relationship with Alfred Stieglitz. As his wife and muse, O’Keeffe often stayed in New York City, producing dark, vertical paintings of urban scenes, with compositions suggestive of the Stieglitz’s photography. Later in life, she would fall in love with the stark landscape and open skies of New Mexico, and starting in 1929 would spend significant—and eventually all—of her time there, painting the landscape, architecture, and bleached animal bones.
