Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
Great Women Artists: Georgia O'Keeffe profiles the painter known best for her grand and erotic flower shapes. The video takes an informative look at O'Keeffe's productive career, her marriage to famous photographer Alfred Steiglitz, who was obsessed with taking her picture, and her unique style of abstract painting. O'Keeffe said that she often painted fragments of things instead of conveying the whole. The subtle approach seemed to make her statement more successfully. Her goal was to create an equivalent for what she felt about what she was looking at, not copy it.
