Georgia O’Keeffe was known for her “modernist “approach to the American Art. Flowers fascinated O’Keeffe and they were her favorite subject on canvas. Georgia O’Keeffe was born in Wisconsin in 1887, she was considered one the greatest Italian American painters of the 20th century. “O’Keeffe revolutionized the tradition of flower painting in the 1920s by making large format paintings of enlarged blossoms, presenting them close up as if seen through a magnifying lens”¹. “O’Keefe studied art in Chicago from 1905 to 1906 and at the Art of Students league of New York”². With her paintings she vividly portrayed the power and emotion of objects of nature. “Flowers were the images that fascinated O’Keefe because of the liveliness that she depicted in her artwork. “O’Keeffe was known for her two master pieces of “Oriental Poppies, 1928, and the “White Flower on Red Earth, No.1, 1943”³. These images are known for their vivid bold colors, and the oversized structure that depict the beauty and the visual imaginary that she displayed”.
In viewing Georgia O’Keefe’s flowery images on-line the two main pieces that captured my attention were her known pieces of the “Oriental Poppies” and the “White Flower on Red Earth. The “Oriental Poppies, 1928”, and the “White Flower on Red Earth” 1943, are two images painted by O’Keefe that depicts the bold, bright colors of beauty, both the images are oil based color paintings, the Oriental Poppies have two giant poppy flowers with an explosion of an orange brilliancy color with a compelling effect to the imagination.
