Georgia O'Keeffe: Life and Work

Barbara Buhler Lynes

Born in 1887, Georgia O'Keeffe first came to the attention of the New York art community in 1916, several decades after women had gained access to art training in America’s colleges and universities, and before any of its women artists were well known or highly celebrated. Within a decade, however, she had distinguished herself as one of America’s most important modern artists, a position she maintained throughout her life. As a result, O'Keeffe not only carved out a significant place for women painters in an area of the American art community that had been exclusive to and is still dominated by men, but also she had become one of Americas most celebrated cultural icons well before her death at age 98 in 1986.
