Georgia O’Keeffe was an influential American artist known for her contributions to modern art. Born in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, she studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Students League in New York City. O’Keeffe developed a distinctive style characterized by bold colors, close-up compositions, and abstract representations of natural forms. Her iconic paintings of flowers, landscapes, and animal skulls captured the essence of the American Southwest, where she drew inspiration.

O’Keeffe gained prominence after her work caught the attention of photographer Alfred Stieglitz, who became her husband and champion. Throughout her career, she continued to push artistic boundaries, experimenting with various mediums, including photography. Despite her later seclusion in New Mexico, O’Keeffe’s influence persisted, shaping the trajectory of modern art.
