GOK-NYBGThe City of New York is seeking female candidates, to honor with a statue in Central Park. We recommend the American artist Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986), who spent several decades of her long and fruitful life in NYC — and as a true feminist worked hard, was excellent at what she did, and got along with men.

NYBG-GOK1NYBG-GOK2In 1939, the American artist Georgia O’Keeffe spent 3 months painting in Hawaii, as part of an artist series commissioned by the Dole Pineapple Company. Two of her Hawaii pictures (out of 20 made) were used in print ads for the company. The New York Botanical Garden has recently brought together the fruits of O’Keeffe’s time in Hawaii, in a show that runs through October 28, 2018.NYBG-GOKEspecially noteworthy are the “Waterfall” paintings, which seem more personal, prefiguring O’Keeffe’s important “Black Place” paintings of the 1940s.
