Abstract:

"Starting in the '20s - when Georgia was recognized as one of the most important protagonists of modernism in America - until his death, the artist and his 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 his 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. His 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. Founded in 1887 by a family of farmers and She went to art since childhood, Georgia O'Keeffe began his studies in Chicago then continued to New York. After working as a graphic design and teacher, from 1918 he devoted himself entirely to painting, with the support of the photographer and gallery owner Alfred Stieglitz, whom she married in 1924 and with whom he lived at 30 th floor of the Shelton Hotel in New York. These were the years when he began to paint the Big City. After many trips to the United States, following the death of her husband in 1946, he settled in New Mexico that had inspired so much. At the age of 66 years began to travel the world and devoted himself to experiments with clay. He died in 1986"--Transliterated from publisher's website.
