Paintings by Georgia OKeeffe
|Georgia OKeeffe was a U.S. painter and wife
of Stieglitz. Georgia OKeeffe was one of the prominent figures in the 1920s U.S. reaction
against avant-garde European ideas and movement towards a romantic, naturalistic art. Her
own painting, however - 'magical realism' - has Surrealist undertones. The exotic colour
and form of plants and flowers are heightened by taking them out of their natural context.
Later works include the 24-ft wide (7.3-m.) Sky Above Clouds IV (1965).
