Georgia O'Keeffe: Artist (Women of Achievement)
Known for her remarkable paintings and her mystique, Georgia O'Keeffe created evocative paintings that reflected her adopted home of New Mexico. Once a Wisconsin farm girl, she studied the classic techniques of art, only to reject them after a summer art school class helped her find her own artistic style. She then relocated to New York, breaking into its bustling art scene of the 1920s with the help of photographer Alfred Stieglitz, who she married. Soon, though, O'Keeffe realized her relationship with Stieglitz was both a help and hindrance to her development as an artist, and she sought to strike out on her own, finding a true home in New Mexico. Because geography greatly affected her art, the move to the Southwest brought her bold art to fruition. In "Georgia O'Keeffe: Artist", read about the journey of one of America's finest artists.
