Georgia O'Keeffe is one of the proud and conquering figures who forged American mythology. The United States is not mistaken in identifying her in 1939 as one of the twelve women who contributed to the development of American civilization.
From the end of the 1910s, she was at the heart of modern American art in which she contributed to the emergence and then to the further expression. O'Keeffe is also the first female artist to establish herself among critics, collectors and modern art museums.
Her fascination with the Wild West and Indian culture and arts earned her the nickname "Modern Calamity Jane." Her life of asceticism earned her the nickname of "Eastern Sage."
The album has 7 sections: Early Works, Towards Abstraction, From New York to Lake George, A Plant World, Bones and Shells, New Mexico, and Cosmos; with 12 detailed works punctuated by quotations. The album ends with a detailed timeline.
