Born in 1887 near Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, a tiny village bordering the great north woods, Georgia O’Keeffe became a giant of twentieth-century modern art and the first American woman painter to gain unanimous respect from both critics and the public the world over. Yet she carried the powerful simplicity of the prairie with her always and maintained an integrity in her art that reflected the integrity of her life.
Although perhaps most famous for her extraordinary paintings of flowers, Georgia O’Keeffe was also fascinated by trees throughout her career—from the magnificent maples near Lake George in upstate New York to the ethereal cottonwoods that line the Chama River in New Mexico. With trees she expressed the seasonality of nature and of life itself, often in intriguing abstractions. The four paintings of trees featured here speak with great force of the subtlety of O’Keeffe's mind, the grace of her hand, and the thoughtful delight she found in the physical world.
