Georgia Totto O'Keeffe (November 15. 1887 – March 6, 1986) was an American artist. Born near Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, O'Keeffe was a major figure in American art from the 1920s. She received widespread recognition for her technical contributions, as well as for challenging the boundaries of modern American artistic style. She is chiefly known for paintings of flowers, rocks, shells, animal bones, and landscapes in which she synthesized abstraction and representation. Her paintings present crisply contoured forms that are replete with subtle tonal transitions of varying colours. She often transformed her subject matter into powerful abstract images.
O'Keeffe played a central role in bringing an American art style to Europe at a time when the majority of influence flowed in the opposite direction. This feat enhanced her art-historical importance given that she was one of few women to have gained entry to this level of professional influence. She found artistic inspiration in the rural Southwest, particularly in New Mexico, where she settled late in life.
An early abstract O'Keeffe work influenced by the Modernist notion that artists' subjects should be their personal ideas and feelings and that these could be visualized most effectively through harmonious arrangements of line, colour, and notan (the Japanese system for arranging lights and darks). Here dark colors form an open cone containing flowing light colors, with rippling greens nearby. (Modernist, 1919)
