Corn, Dark , No. 1

Georgia O'Keeffe, 1924

In the summer of 1924, O’Keeffe painted three pictures, using the same color schemes and narrow formats, of the corn stalks growing in her Lake George garden. More than 50 years later she remembered "the light-colored veins of the dark green leaves reaching out in opposite directions. And every morning a little drop of dew would run down the veins into the center of this plant like a little lake—all fine and fresh." []
