She is one of the most prolific artists of our time.
Georgia O’Keefe was an American artist (1887-1986) born on a farm in Wisconsin. After studying art at the Art Institute of Chicago, she continued her education at the Art Students League of New York, University of Virginia, and later at Teachers College of Columbia University. As she continued to perfect her craft and continue her education, Georgia O’Keefe became associated with the Precisionist Movement. Precisionism developed in the 1920’s as an attempt for Americans to develop an art form of their own; an art form that was solely American. Precisionism was enthralled with the modern lifestyle and the American machine. Fellow precisionist artist and O’Keefe’s husband, Alfred Stiegltiz, was responsible for much of Georgia O’Keefe’s popularity. He displayed many, if not all, of her works in his galleries till his death in 1946. Although belonging to the Precisionist movement, Georia O’Keefe altered her artistry stylistically during her career. With her change in location came the change in art. Instead of showing the fast pace, modern, and technological advances of society, specifically New York, she began to strip her paintings of the materialism that they consisted and the messages they conveyed. She embarked on an artistic journey where she began to depict the organic subject matter of objects. Georgia O’Keefe’s subject matter now resembled the lifestyles, simplicity, and environment of the Southwest. She soon used her art to characterize society through symbolic figures and colors. One of Georgia O’Keefe’s most famous depictions of American society is Red, White, and Blue. Through Georgia O’Keefe’s use of colors and objects one can deduce that Red, White, and Blue is a clear and concise representation of society. With the assistance of extensive research, articles, books, and journals by established scholars from all over the world will provide insight into the societal depiction in the famous painting Red, White, and Blue by Georgia O’Keefe.
