Artwork Title: Georgia O’Keeffe with Matisse Sculpture

Georgia O’Keeffe with Matisse Sculpture, 1921

Alfred Stieglitz

In this portrait, O’Keeffe wears loose clothing similar to the four white outfits seen in this gallery. Here, she holds a bronze sculpture by Henri Matisse of a female nude from 1906 that Stieglitz owned, having exhibited it at his 291 gallery in 1912 in the first American exhibition devoted to that artist’s sculptures. The curl of O’Keeffe’s fingers echoes and enhances the sculpture’s protruding breasts and arms. (
