Georgia Totto O'Keeffe

November 15, 1887 – March 6, 1986 was an American artist. She was best known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers, and New Mexico landscapes. O'Keeffe has been recognized as the "Mother of American modernism".

 

O'Keeffe was a legend beginning in the 1920s, known as much for her independent spirit and female role model, as for her dramatic and innovative works of art.Nancy and Jules Heller said, "The most remarkable thing about O'Keefe was the audacity and uniqueness of her early work." At that time, even in Europe, there were few arts exploring abstraction. Even though her works may show elements of different modernist movements, like Surrealism and Precisionism, her work is uniquely her own style.She received unprecedented acceptance as a female artist from the fine art world due to her powerful graphic images and within a decade of moving to New York City, she was the highest paid American woman artist.O'Keeffe was also known for her relationship with Stieglitz, in which she provided some insight in her autobiography.
