Having become an art teacher in the 1910s, Georgia O’Keeffe is remarked thanks to a series of charcoal abstract drawings that lead Alfred Stieglitz to exclaim, ‘At last, a woman on paper!’ and exhibit her work in his gallery. Supported by the photographer, the American artist soon establishes herself in New York and marries her mentor, in 1924. Georgia O’Keeffe is eager to depict not what she sees but what she feels, should it be feminine nudes, landscapes, urban skyscrapers or her incredible close-ups of flowers that would later inspire Robert Mapplethorpe. While she is recognized as an innovative modernist, Alfred Stieglitz depicts his muse with photographs featuring the complexity of her personality as well as her evolution and aging. Having fallen in love with New Mexico during a trip in 1929, Georgia O’Keeffe definitely settles there in 1949 and finds new subjects to paint in its rugged mountains and animal bones while she takes on a simple monastic existence: ‘I chose coming away because here at least I feel good — and it makes me feel I am growing very tall and straight inside — and very still’. Since, the artist has inspired various creatives from photographers to fashion designers such as Calvin Klein who met the reclusive painter and shot a campaign with Bruce Weber in her New Mexico home.
