Georgia O'Keeffe is one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. She is also known as the "Mother of American Modernism". Modernism is the trend of thought that declares the power of individuals to create, improve, and reshape their environment with the use of scientific knowledge. The idea of modernism is one that is very progressive. Modernism can be seen in the majority of O'Keeffe's work, from her paintings of the New Mexico landscapes to the larger than life paintings of flowers. Her detailed still-life pictures are very interesting to me which is why I decided to focus on a gallery centered around Georgia O'Keeffe.
