Georgia O’Keeffe

Today I saw the special Georgia O’Keeffe exhibition at the Memorial Art Gallery! It’s not what I expected (I expected flower and bone artwork), but it was really interesting nonetheless. There were many black and white photos of Georgia O’Keeffe taken by her husband Alfred Stieglitz and another photographer Todd Webb, along with some of her earlier works. Here’s a couple of the photographs I saw today. Here’s Georgia O’Keeffe at the University of Virginia:

I figured it would be easy to find images on the web of all of her works, how mistaken I was, so I’ll have to get the rest of the images for you later. For now, here’s the list of her work that I saw. If I found an image, it is below the title. These are all much more gorgeous in person.

    They’re gorgeous! The images in my post don’t do them justice at all!

    This is a nice post. Love those paintings, and the shot of her. The colors work so well, guess that is what makes her a great artist.

    Sandy, they wrote in great detail about her methods in the early days, and it is just amazing – I wish the colors came through better – they were very beautiful in person.

    I don’t know her paintings at all, other than all those really big flowers – I like these so much better.

    What beauty.
    I have images like that in my head, but I could never translate them to canvas. I love artists. They have found their souls.

    I agree Susan. If you have images like this in your head, that is half the battle! I say go for putting them on canvas. I like the one painting that you showed us a while back!
