Georgia O’Keeffe was born in Wisconsin and became one of the best paid female artists of all time. Alfred Stieglitz had galleries in New York City that displayed O’Keeffe’s work. Stieglitz was stunned by her work, and by her. They had a long-term romantic relationship.
O’Keeffe was the subject of much press attention, which she tried to avoid. A consistent theme of her responses was that our history does not define us … what we have done and our future is what is important.
