In the Galleries: Four Paintings by Georgia O’Keeffe

Posted on January 18, 2017 by cmoore

On view NOW in gallery 226A, check out four paintings by Georgia O’Keeffe, including three of her well-known flower paintings.

O'Keeffe is best known for close-up flower subjects whose magnified forms fill the entire space of each canvas. Likely inspired by similar compositions in modern photography, these images are not only celebrations of nature, but also striking essays in abstract design.
