Overview

Known for her remarkable artwork and for her mystique, Georgia O'Keeffe created evocative paintings that reflected her adopted home of New Mexico. Once a Wisconsin farm girl, she studied classical art technique, but rejected it after a summer art school class helped her find her own artistic style. Upon relocating to New York City, she broke into its bustling art scene with the help of photographer Alfred Stieglitz, whom she later married. Soon, however, O'Keeffe realized her relationship with Stieglitz was hindering her development as an artist and she sought to strike out on her own, finding a true home in New Mexico. In Georgia O'Keeffe, read about the journey of one of America's finest artists.
