Summary
Famed for her images of flowers and Southwestern landscapes, Georgia O'Keeffe spent several years exploring the built environment of New York City with brush in hand. The artist first moved to the city's newly built Shelton Hotel in 1924, then the tallest residential skyscraper in the world, and its soaring heights inspired a five-year period of energetic experimentation, across media and at a variety of scales, with subject matter, form, and perspective. -- host institution website, viewed May 29, 2024.
