Artwork Title: Untitled (Abstraction Red Wave with Circle)

Untitled (Abstraction Red Wave with Circle), 1979

Georgia O'Keeffe

When macular degeneration seriously reduced the artist’s eyesight, she still produced drawings with beautiful abstract marks that owed much to her study of Asian styles of calligraphy. With the aid of an assistant, she created over 40 watercolors on paper, each consisting of just a few strokes and dots from a wide brush. These markings and the ways they define and interact with the white spaces around them form a late-life bookend to the 1910’s abstractions that opened O’Keeffe career. (
