Georgia O’Keeffe is one of the most significant and intriguing artists of the 20th century, known internationally for her boldly innovative art. She was famous for her large-scale flower paintings, as well as her images of the towering skyscrapers of New York City and the landscape of New Mexico. In a career spanning more than 60 years, she produced more than a thousand artworks.

Above all, she was a pioneer of abstraction, creating images that were inspired by close observation of her surroundings but were products of her insight and imagination rather than imitative representations of the visual world.
