So strong is the association between Georgia O'Keeffe (American, 1887-1986) and New Mexico that it is easy to forget how many of her oversized flower pictures were painted in New York. Between 1918 and 1929, she divided her time between New York City and the Adirondack Mountains, painting cityscapes, pastoral Lake George scenes, and the singular flower studies that brought her international acclaim in the mid-1920s. A summer visit to New Mexico proved to be a seminal event in O'Keeffe's life; enchanted by the high desert, she returned nearly every year thereafter and moved permanently to her beloved Abiquiu after the death of her husband, Alfred Stieglitz. The twelve unmistakably O'Keeffe flower paintings reproduced in this calendar range from her early New York days to her time in New Mexico.
