s one of the American painter, one of the most celebrated painters of the United States.
More than 500 examples of his work is found in more than 100 public collections in Asia, Europe and North and Central America. And because his work was exhibited for the first time in New York in 1916, has been included in hundreds of solo and group exhibitions organized throughout the world. Therefore, it comes as something of a surprise to discover that at the time of his death in 1986, when she was ninety-eight, O’Keeffe owned more than half of the 2,029 known works of its total production.
She was born in 1887 and died in his beloved New Mexico in 1986.
It is known for his landscapes and paintings of desert flowers. His paintings of flowers are often interpreted as Yonico and blurred contours of his works evoke abstract images.
