Watch Georgia O’Keeffe Talking About Her Life

Zuzanna Stańska 22 May 2017 min Read

Georgia O'Keeffe was an American artist, best known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers, and New Mexico landscapes. O'Keeffe has been recognized as the "Mother of American modernism". This extraordinary artist refused to be known as the wife of noted US photographer Alfred Stieglitz. Instead, she became one of the most famous painters of her country and beyond. Soaked in sublime colors and light yet evocative shapes, her paintings managed to stand out in a slightly chaotic modernist scene of the time, turning Georgia O’Keeffe into an independent artist and one of the very few female painters. Willingly or not, she paved the way of prominence for many other women who wished to become successful creatives, and continues to do so even today. Watch Georgia O'Keeffe, at her home in New Mexico in 1977, talking about her life and work. She was nearly 90 at the time.
