Details: While the trip Georgia O'Keeffe (American, 1887–1986) took to New Mexico in 1929 expanded her vision to include adobe churches and vast, color-saturated hills and mesas, she had forged a distinctive style a decade earlier. Flowers, landscapes with simple built forms, and still lifes all appear among the paintings she produced in the early 1920s. As the years slipped past, O'Keeffe embraced a more abstract approach to presenting elemental forms. The 12 works reproduced in this compact calendar speak a poetic and a visual language that have become part of American life.
Georgia O'Keeffe (November 15, 1887 - March 6, 1986) was an American artist. She is chiefly known for paintings in which she synthesizes abstraction and representation in paintings of flowers, rocks, shells, animal bones and landscapes. Her paintings present crisply contoured forms that are replete with subtle tonal transitions of varying colors, and she often transformed her subject matter into powerful abstract images.
