Georgia O’Keeffe

(This one is for Kerrie)

Georgia O’Keeffe (1887 – 1986, that’s 99 years y’all!) is the next artist in the Fine Arts category series here at Cor Novus.  Check the sidebar categories link for the others.

I first discovered O’Keeffe about 30 years or so ago.  I liked her works, a little, but was not overly impressed.  Her images of the American Southwest impressed me more than the rest.  She seems to have liked painting flora and was partially known for her erotic depictions of flowers in the abstract representations of vaginas.  Like I said I was not overly impressed.

However, she did several quite stunning and remarkable landscapes.
