Attributed to Georgia O’Keeffe
Circa early to mid-1930s
The decoration at the center of this blouse recalls O’Keeffe’s painting of crinkly-edged autumn leaves and corrugated seashells. The blouse and its ornament are shaped by tiny pintucks that look like the veins of a leaf. A conscientious mender of clothes she liked to wear, O’Keeffe meticulously patched the back of this blouse.
