The Georgia O'Keeffee Collection
"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way... things I had no words for." -- Georgia O'Keeffe.This timeless collection of paintings and photography is available through our CAMIO Database (Catalog of Art Museum Images Online). O'Keeffe is hailed as the "Mother of American Modernism." Her work explores up-close blossoms, Western American (New Mexico) landscapes and subject matter, as well as some city-scapes and photography as well. Femininity, birth, life, and death are strong themes in her art. I encourage you to explore these timeless pieces of American History, as well as other artists and images CAMIO has to offer. -- recommended by Jeremiah J. - Bennett Martin Public Library [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Georgia O'Keefe (DVD); 759.13's; O'Keeffe: The Life of an American Legend, by Hogrefe.]
[Please note: The CAMIO database is available only while on a terminal that is physically within one of the Lincoln City Libraries.]
