Revel in the beauty of the season with our new collection inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s Petunias (1925). Discover our flora, fruit and fauna inspired, artisan goods and a wide selection of items during Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George at the de Young.
This book, and the exhibition it accompanies, examines the extraordinary body of work O'Keeffe created at Lake George, from magnified botanical compositions of the flowers and vegetables she grew in her garden to a group of remarkable still lifes of the apples and pears that she picked. O'Keeffe became fascinated with the variety of trees that grew there, and they were the subject of at least twenty-five compositions. Architectural subjects emerged as a theme, as did a number of panoramic landscape paintings and bold, color-filled abstractions. During this highly productive period, O'Keeffe created more than two hundred paintings on canvas and paper in addition to sketches and pastels, making the Lake George years among the most prolific and transformative of her seven-decade career.
