Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986)
American painter Georgia O’Keeffe is famous for her bold, dramatic paintings. Considered a Modernist, she was unsatisfied with the standard realism and perfection in painting and strived for her own unique style. O’Keeffe is perhaps best known for paintings of plant forms, bleached bones and landscapes of New Mexico, all rendered in her trademark sharp clarity.
Fun fact: In 1946, Georgia O’Keeffe had a one woman exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, making her the first female ever from that museum.
