Red Flower Paintings

Red Flower Paintings Biography
The American painter of flowers Georgia O'Keeffe, wife of the noted US photographer and art dealer Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946), was one of the leading modern artists in America during the first half of the 20th century. She is best known for her abstract art - mostly semi-abstract images of flowers - whose sensuous forms are highly suggestive. In addition, she is noted for her urban cityscapes - as well as her landscapes, still life painting and sculpture. As far as movements go, O'Keeffe was initially associated with Precisionism, but her artwork is also associated with both Expressionism and also Surrealism. Although highly successful within the confines of American art, she never became widely known outside America. Examples of O'Keeffe's oil painting include: Cow's Skull: Red, White, and Blue (1931) and Black Iris III (1926), both at the Metropolitian Museum of Art, New York. Sadly, in 1971, her eyesight failed, after which she produced little further work. A museum dedicated to O'Keeffe's art opened in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1997. Along with contemporaries like Grant Wood (1891-1942), Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975), Edward Hopper (1882-1967) and Norman Rockwell (1894-1978), O'Keeffe is regarded as one of America's top early 20th century painters.
