Georgia O’Keeffe, Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1, 1932

We are wishing happy birthday to Georgia O’Keeffe, who would have been 121 years old today. The paintings of the great American artist are immediately recognizable for their luscious use of colour, turning her eye to everything from enormous flowers to desert landscapes. With her sensual outlook on the world around us, she has inspired a whole new generation of painters. The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Art, an exhibition at the North Carolina Museum of Art, explores this legacy, pairing her work with that of twenty younger artists.
