The art of American painter Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) is splendid with colour and laden with hidden sensuality. O’Keeffe’s name rests mainly on the large-format flower pictures that have assured her an unusual place in the annals of art, between realist and abstract.
Our Basic Art Series study traces the idiosyncratic of O’Keeffe’s career, and numerous illustrations document the most important periods in her lengthy life in art.
Britta Benke, born in 1960, studied art history, classical archaeology and romance languages and literature in Göttingen, Münster and Bonn. Georgia O'Keeffe is the main focus of her research and also the subject of her dissertation.
