Selected Paintings and Works on Paper : Dallas, June 14 Through July 14, 1986Book - 1986
O’Keeffe first saw New Mexico in 1917 and in 1929 when she visited Mabel Dodge Luhan in Taos. Thereafter O’Keeffe returned each summer to paint. Abiquiu, New Mexico became her permanent home in 1946, following her husband’s death.
This catalogue is a broad survey of O’Keeffe’s art and vision, from her early abstract watercolors to her later New Mexico landscapes. These pages give equal treatment to her sublime but lesser known works on paper, including watercolors and charcoals of land, sky, botanical, and architectural motifs. Many flower paintings – for which O’Keeffe is perhaps best known – are included, as well as major oil paintings from the Black Place and Black Cross series.
