  • Description

    A bronze statue of Georgia O’Keeffe, a painter, who is known as “the mother of American modernism.”
    The semi-realistic, semi-abstract statue that was created and dedicated in 1982 depicts O’Keeffe as an older woman, sitting on a tree stump and holding a cane, with her two dogs, Bo and Chia, by her sides. All are facing west, towards the setting sun.
    The sculptress, Marisol Escobar, based the portrait on a photograph she took while visiting O’Keeffe in New Mexico.

    Description: "Georgia O'Keeffe, one of the most original painters America has ever produced, left behind a remarkable legacy when she died at the age of ninety-eight. Her vivid visual vocabulary -- sensuous flowers, bleached bones against red sky and earth -- had a stunning, profound, and lasting influence on American art in this century.
    O'Keeffe's personal mystique is as intriguing and enduring as her bold, brilliant canvases. Here is the first full account of her exceptional life -- from her girlhood and early days as a controversial art her discovery by the pioneering photographer of the New York avant-garde, Alfred her seclusion in the New Mexico desert, where she lived until her death.
    And here is the story of a great romance -- between the extraordinary painter and her much older mentor, lover, and husband, Alfred Stieglitz.
    Renowned for her fierce independence, iron determination, and unique artistic vision, Georgia O'Keeffe is a twentieth-century legend. Her dazzling career spans virtually the entire history modern art in America."
