Georgia O' Keeffe

Biography

American artist.

O'Keeffe first came to the attention of the New York art community in 1916. She made large-format paintings of enlarged blossoms, presenting them close up as if seen through a magnifying lens, and New York buildings, most of which date from the same decade. Beginning in 1929, when she began working part of the year in Northern New Mexico—which she made her permanent home in 1949—O’Keeffe depicted subjects specific to that area. O'Keeffe has been recognized as the Mother of American Modernism.

On January 10, 1977, President Gerald R. Ford presented O'Keeffe with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In 1985, she was awarded the National Medal of Arts.

She died on 6 March 1986, at the age of 98..
