In the early 1900s, Georgia O’Keeffe was at the forefront of the modernist movement and she remained a central figure in American art for over 70 years. With her unique vision and style of expression, O’Keeffe captured the essential forms of nature and produced timeless, evocative images.  Although she is most known for her close-up paintings of flowers, O’Keeffe also applied her stark and precise style to cityscapes of Manhattan and landscapes of New Mexico.
