It was painted in 1932. Such a painting cannot be finished in one day, so there is no exact date.
Red Poppy, 1927. (There are more than one painting of this title, though).
The Georgia O'Keeffe museum reports more than 2,029 paintings.
Because she wanted everybody to love them.
She painted it in 1943.
For us to better see the details. Do not see a flower just as a spot of color! See how they are made up of beautiful details! That is what her paintings said.
She did paintings of flowers and animal skulls. This is a fact.She also drew many lanscapes. Cubist Realism, also called Precisionism. It is a combination of Picasso Cubi…sm but replaces the strong linearism with a realist approach to appear more natural.Answer 2: Cubism??? Ah, come on! Out of all of Georgia O'Keeffe's master-pieces we know that she enjoys making paintings of extreme close-ups of flowers. It was a kind of realism. You might call it fantastic poetic realism.
She started painting at 10. But when she did all the flowers and animal skulls she did that at age 37.
As a professional artist Georgia O'Keeffe did not sign her paintings. She many times wrote on the back of the canvas on a label or on the stretcher.
For us to see them more clearly and better to enjoy them.
The "cup of Silver Ginger" appears to be a tropical flower of the genus Solandra.
Mainly the usual kind of oil paint. Oil paint like most other painters of the time (first part of the 1900's).
I assume you know what abstract means. It means having no subject. Georgia O'Keeffe painted very many close-ups of flowers. The effect was often close to abstract, but still d…epicting a flower in an unusual perspective. Her pictures usually have titles telling you the subject. Then they cannot be abstract. In her very young days she did paint abstract paintings, called e.g. Music Red and Blue. This means they do not depict real things.
