Oriental Poppies

Georgia O'Keeffe, 1928

30 x 40 inch
"Oriental Poppies" almost looks like a close up photograph. O'Keeffe did not give any background to the painting, to artfully draw focus onto the flowers. The absence of context in the painting presents them in a new light as pure abstracts. "I'll paint what I see - what the flower is to me but I'll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it - I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers... http://www.georgiaokeeffe.net/oriental-poppies.jsp "Nobody sees a flower really — it is so small — we haven't time, and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time."
