10.14 Georgia O’Keeffe, an American Painter

Her Half of History

Georgia O’Keeffe is the hardest to classify of all the painters I have covered. Her work is neither abstract, nor realistic, nor surreal.  She is simply a modern painter, most famous for her gorgeous flower paintings and landscapes of New Mexico, which feature bold colors and swirling shapes. She made it big in the art world in a way that few other women have, and she also holds the record for the highest auction price ever paid for a female artist’s work.
