Abstract:

"Starting in the '20s - when Georgia was recognized as one of the most important protagonists of modernism in America - until her death, the artist and her works have attracted a great interest in the arts community and the American public. Despite the great gained recognition in America and Europe, only a few of her works have been exhibited to the European public. Artist and woman, Georgia O 'Keeffe (1887-1986) embodies the American myth of independence, individualism and greatness. Her works are unique, as the combination of colors: the study of forms, the choice of tone and color, the curvy and sensual portion of the brush are repeated in games and new combinations, but never quite different. Georgia O'Keeffe began her studies in Chicago then continued to New York. After working as a graphic design and teacher, from 1918 she devoted herself entirely to painting, with the support of photographer and gallery owner Alfred Stieglitz, whom she married in 1924 and with whom she lived at 30th floor of the Shelton Hotel in New York. These were the years when she began to paint the Big City. After many trips to the United States, following the death of her husband in 1946, she settled in New Mexico. At the age of 66 years, she began to travel the world and devoted herself to experiments with clay. She died in 1986"--Transliterated from publisher's website.
