Feather and Brown Leaf, 1935

Georgia O'Keeffe

O’Keeffe created still life paintings to observe and investigate objects from nature. “It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis that we get a real meaning of things,” she explained. For her, meaning resided in shape, color, and the emotional reaction they evoked. She collected objects whose particular qualities represented a specific place or interest she had: in this case, her fascination with nature in New Mexico, where she spent her summers starting in 1929.
