Georgia O'Keeffe

One of America's most popular artists with an international reputation. She is best known for her dramatic, and sometimes controversial pictures of flowers. She was, in every sense a pioneering artist - female, talented, independant and willing to to look beyond outward appearances. With her unique visions of both city and desert, she transformed the infinitely smalland large into landscapes of exuberant colour and unexpected forms.
