Georgia O’Keeffe shunned the European ideals that dominated fine art in the early twentieth century. Primarily in oil, O’Keeffe, (1887–1986) brought the miniature to scale. She disregarded the human form as subject matter early on, instead painting lively and intimate flower portraits. During the same period she posed frequently and famously in photographs for Alfred Stieglitz, who championed her painting to national and worldwide acclaim through his influential New York gallery, 291, and who later became her husband. A seminal shift in 1929 brought her to spend summers painting in New Mexico, where she took inspiration from the desertscapes and the weathered objects within. After Stieglitz’s sudden death in 1946, New Mexico became her full-time home. She remained there until her death in 1986.
