Georgia O'Keeffe 

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.

This oil painting, painted in 1937, depicts two seashells with a shade of pink. This artwork is shows characteristics that are similar to the style of artist Georgia O'Keeffe. These characteristics include still-life and the use of oil.
The oil painting is by Georgia O'Keeffe and uses her style of oil on canvas to depict the clam and mussel. The still-life painting is characteristic of Georgia O'Keeffe due to the use of oil and the idea of modernism in which we use scientific knowledge in order to depict nature.
Aside from her paintings of flowers, Georgia O'Keeffe is famous for her paintings of landscapes. More specifically, the most well known of her landscape art is from the New Mexico area. This piece called "Mule's Skull with Pink Poinsettia", is the epitome of her landscape art through the depiction of a mule's skull which reveals the location of the piece.
This artwork, known as "The Cliff Chimneys", uses oil on a canvas to depict cliffs most likely located in the New Mexico area. This type of modernism art is what artist Georgia O'Keeffe is known for. The painting of nature and still life is synonymous with O'Keeffe's work.
The painting, "Black Mesa Landscape", depicts the cliffs and mountains in the New Mexico area. The darkening shade can either be from the shading of the cliffs from the lack of sunlight or it could also be the natural hue of the mountains. O'Keeffe's ability to create such masterful and vivid paintings, whether it be flowers or landscapes, is quite a sight to behold.
Created in 1941 by Georgia O'Keeffe, "Pedernal" portrays the cliffs and landscapes of New Mexico. What is more impressive about her paintings is her ability to find such a beautiful location to create her painting. The majority of her paintings are created from still-life and use oil on canvas.
The self explanatory title, "Mountain at Bear Lake" by Georgia O'Keeffe, shows a mountain along with a lake at the bottom. The impressive shading and contouring of the landscape creates vivid imagery that help to create an idea of what the landscape looks like in reality.
Georgia O'Keeffe is primarily known for her work with flowers and the use of still-life. The species of flowers portrayed in her artwork are predominantly native to the New Mexico area. Her ability to blend various colors allow for a vivid and realistic depiction of a petunia flower.
Specifically stated in the title, "Abstraction White Rose" by Georgia O'Keeffe, depicts a white rose up close. The abstract painting creates a more detailed and closer look at the white rose. She is most well known for her detailed and remarkably sharp paintings of flowers, and this one is a refreshing change of pace with the use of abstraction.
The majority of her paintings are self titled and this painting is no exception. "Calla Lily in Tall Glass - No. 2", depicts a flower in a tall vase that is filled with water. Georgia O'Keeffe paints the stem of the Calla Lily in a certain way in order to make it appear to be in water. We perceive the flower to be in a vase of water due to the bending of the light much like water in reality would do.
