Artwork Title: In the Patio IX

In the Patio IX, 1964

Georgia O'Keeffe

The “V” was a significant form in O’Keeffe’s wardrobe—and in her paintings, like this abstracted image of her beloved patio at Abiquiu. Her attraction to this simple geometric shape is also evident in the adjacent series of Polaroids she took at Glen Canyon while on a rafting trip on the Colorado River in 1961. She was captivated by the natural V created by the dark rock formations against the bright sky, and took a series of pictures capturing that slice of landscape under different light conditions. (
