Georgia O’Keeffe: Flowers

Iconic painter and American modernist Georgia O’Keeffe (1887 – 1986), the wife of Alfred Stieglitz, is among other things known for taking the feminist practice of painting flowers to a whole new and higher level in the first part of the 20. century. She is also famouse for painting the landscapes of the American South West and today she is often compared with Andy Warholl for having an iconic personality which has overshadowed her work. Her sensual paintings are an important part of the feminist art history in the 20. century and inadvertedly she became a role model for a new generation of feminist artist later in her life.

The above slideshow presents some of her magnificient botanical compositions of the flowers and vegetables from her garden.
