Georgia O'Keeffe is a name that almost everyone knows, but as an art history minor, my relationship is a little bit deeper. I've spent countless hours looking at slides of famous paintings, studying their technique, style, and impact. Across the centuries, works of art differ greatly, but one common thread is that most well-known paintings are created by men. I'm sure it comes as no surprise that O'Keffee speaks to me and other women because of her talent, but also because of her female voice.
The deYoung is hosting an exhibition of her work through May 11. You won't want to miss these perfect paintings by an amazing woman. I will be going tonight to check it out. Feel free to join me!
In honor of Georgia, I have found the perfect 10 pairs inspired by her perfect paintings.
