Appears signed to rear cover after faux signature inside. Georgia O'Keeffe was an American artist known for her unique and innovative artwork. She was born on November 15, 1887, in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. O'Keeffe studied art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and later at the Art Students League in New York City.

Throughout her career, Georgia O'Keeffe became known for her large-scale paintings of flowers, skulls, and landscapes. Her paintings often featured bold, vibrant colors and close-up perspectives. O'Keeffe's style was a combination of abstraction and representation, with a focus on form, color, and composition.

O'Keeffe gained recognition for her artwork in the 1920s and 1930s and became one of the most prominent American modernist artists. She was associated with the art movement known as Precisionism and the Stieglitz Circle, a group of artists and photographers led by her husband, Alfred Stieglitz.

In the 1940s, O'Keeffe moved to New Mexico, which became a significant source of inspiration for her artwork. She often depicted the desert landscapes and natural forms of the region in her paintings. O'Keeffe's unique and abstract interpretations of nature made her one of the most influential American artists of the 20th century.

Georgia O'Keeffe continued to create art well into her later years and became an icon for female artists. She received numerous awards and honors for her contributions to the art world and was the first woman to have a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in 1946.

O'Keeffe passed away on March 6, 1986, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, leaving behind a remarkable legacy of artistic innovation and creativity. Her artwork continues to be celebrated and exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide.
