In the Spotlight
When Georgia O'Keeffe's "Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1," sold at Sotheby's for 44.4 million in 2014, it became the most expensive painting by a female artist ever recorded. That fact is not surprising to those who have followed her career.
"Georgia O’Keeffe is one of the most significant and intriguing artists of the twentieth century, known internationally for her boldly innovative art. Her distinct flowers, dramatic cityscapes, glowing landscapes, and images of bones against the stark desert sky are iconic."
But we invite you to travel with us back in time, to when Georgia O'Keeffe was still seeking to find a personal visual language through which she could express her feelings and ideas. It was then, back in 1915, when she began a series of abstract charcoal drawings that represented a radical break with tradition and made O’Keeffe one of the very first American artists to practice pure abstraction.
It was when O’Keeffe mailed some of these highly abstract drawings to a friend in New York City, who in turn showed them to Alfred Stieglitz an art dealer and internationally known photographer, that she was discovered.
In 1968, Atlantis Editions produced a limited edition portfolio of ten of these early drawings as offset lithographs. Limited to only 250 editions, finding the complete portfolio in pristine condition is rare indeed.
Red View Gallery is proud to present one of them. With two of the ten lithographs framed for display we invite you to come enjoy these early works of America's greatest female artist.
