Georgia O'Keeffe occupies a place of honor in the art histories of my home state and my current residence. She was born here in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin (just outside of Madison) in 1887. Georgia began to spend part of her year in Taos, New Mexico in 1929 and moved to Abiquiu, New Mexico permanently in 1949.
Lilies were one of Georgia's favorite subjects to paint. In honor of her amazing work, and an absolutely fascinating biography, here is a tribute to one of America's greatest artists.
