Born near Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, Georgia O'Keeffe carried the prairie's simplicity and strength with her as she strove to convey the essence of her subjects' spirit and form. Over the course of a dozen years spent chiefly in New York, where the impresario, photographer, and gallery owner Alfred Stieglitz championed O'Keeffe, her paintings awed critics and public audiences. O'Keeffe (1887-1986) first visited New Mexico in 1929 and returned there throughout the 1930s. In 1949 she made her home in New Mexico. There she refined the directness of vision that reveals itself so powerfully in her art. Bursting with brazen color and blazing light, O'Keeffe's sensually charged flowers and bold landscapes speak evocatively of the thoughtful delight she took in the physical world.
