Georgia O'Keeffe (November 15, 1887 – March 6, 1986)

Corn, Dark I

O'Keeffe mostly straddled that strange zone between Expressionism and Abstract Expressionism (though she did cross the line occasionally). Her paintings are highly stylized and emotional, and, as many claim, rather vaginal; interestingly, O'Keeffe denied that her paintings had anything to do with female genitalia, which begs the question, is the audience projecting or is the painter subconsciously embedding that idea?
