We only had forty-five minutes to visit the Georgia O’Keefe museum in Santa Fe, and we almost didn’t go, but I’m really glad we did. It was just enough time to see it all, even reading the text that gave context (I do read fast, which helps), and I really didn’t know much about her work beyond the famous flowers. Totally inspiring to have it all in context, seeing how her work changed over the decades, and as she moved from place to place and travelled. So many of the works were incredibly stunning. I would gladly go back.
Here are a few of my favorites: Train at Night in Desert (1916) Red Landscape (1916/1917), Starlight Night (1917), Evening Star No. II (1917), Series I White & Blue Flower Shapes (1919), Pond in the Woods (1922), Machu Picchu I (1957), Green and White (1957/1958), Untitled (City Night) (1970s).
