O'Keeffe went on many pack trips exploring the rugged mountains and deserts of the region. On one trip she visited the D. H. Lawrence Ranch and spent several weeks there and painted "her now famous oil painting, 'The Lawrence Tree', which is currently owned by the Wadsworth Athenaeum in Hartford, Connecticut."[6]
While in Taos in 1929, O'Keeffe visited the nearby historical St. Francis of Assisi Missionary at Ranchos de Taos. .Although many artists had made paintings of the church, O'Keeffe's painting of a fragment of the mission wall silhouetted against the dark blue sky captured it in a different way, a fusion of religion and nature.^ Human nature always focus of interest: “A tree against the sky possesses the same interest, the same character, the same expression as the figure of a human.” .

^ Although a prolific artist, the uneven quality of his output has made it difficult to clearly establish his particular place within the history of Impressionism.

[7]
.Between 1929 and 1949, O'Keeffe spent part of nearly every year working in New Mexico.^ It forms part of the definitive work on Henry Moore%27s sculpture, cataloguing every piece made by him in this period.

During her second summer there, she began collecting and painting bones, and started painting the distinctive architectural and landscape forms of the area. Each fall she returned to New York. She also went on several camping trips with the nature photographer Eliot Porter, including a challenging raft expedition in 1961 down the Colorado River about Glen Canyon, Utah.[7]
In 1932, O'Keeffe suffered a nervous breakdown following an uncompleted Radio City Music Hall mural project that had fallen behind schedule. .She was hospitalized in early 1933 and did not paint again until January 1934. In the spring of 1933 and 1934, O'Keeffe recuperated in Bermuda and she returned to New Mexico in the summer of 1934. In June of that year, she visited Ghost Ranch, north of Abiquiu, for the first time and decided immediately to live there; in 1940, she purchased a house on the ranch property.^ Having lived in the Latrobe Valley for two years, I wouldn't be surprised if there are dozens more Aussie Fritzls.

A loner, O'Keeffe explored this place that she loved on her own. She bought a Ford Model A and asked others to teach her how to drive. After one particularly exasperating moment, one of her teachers declared that she was unable to learn the art of driving. Only her determination was to lead to mastering her machine. .In 1943, she explained her fascination with the American Southwest, accordingly, "Such a beautiful, untouched lonely feeling place, such a fine part of what I call the 'Faraway'. It is a place I have painted before .^ Poetry, prose, painting, sculpture, photography and artists%27 texts all have their place in this fascinating and attractive book.

. . even now I must do it again."[7]
In the 1930s and 1940s, O'Keeffe's reputation and popularity continued to grow, earning her numerous commissions. .Her work was included in exhibitions in and around New York.^ In 1950 Adams participated in an International Arts Program in New York, where he met a number of American artists, including Calder and Motherwell.

^ The two sets of Venice etchings, and the exquisite pastels, were exhibited in a series of distinctive exhibitions in London and New York.

^ Published to celebrate the centennial of his birth, the book accompanies an exhibition jointly organized by The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Kunsthaus, Zurich.

In 1936 Summer Days, a painting featuring a cattle skull adorned with various wildflowers, against a desert background, was completed. .It would become one of her most famous and well-known works.^ Lavishly illustrated and engagingly written, this book leaves one in no doubt that Cockrill is one of the most original artists working in Britain today.

^ But you can't say he is one of americas most WELL KNOWN cultural figures.

^ PM If his houses are falling apart, and I seriously doubt that you have any such evidence His most famous one "fallingwater" is falling apart.

During the 1940s O'Keeffe had two one-woman retrospectives. .The first retrospective was housed at the Art Institute of Chicago (1943).^ This book accompanied a major retrospective exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery, London - the first British show to be devoted to Ensor since the exhibition of his works in 1946 at the National Gallery in London.

^ In five years he transformed what was a disorganized and ill-housed institution into one of the most respected art schools in England.

.The second retrospective was held in 1946 at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in Manhattan, the first retrospective MOMA held for a woman artist.^ This book is published to accompany a major retrospective held at the Royal Academy of Arts to mark Auerbach%27s seventieth birthday.

^ For Scottish artists, the way forward was harder to identify, as they fought to reconcile the demands for a Scottish national art with the stylistic revolution of international modernism.

^ This book accompanied a major retrospective exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery, London - the first British show to be devoted to Ensor since the exhibition of his works in 1946 at the National Gallery in London.

O'Keeffe enjoyed many accolades and honorary degrees from numerous universities. .In the mid-1940s, the Whitney Museum of American Art in Manhattan sponsored a project to establish the first cataloge of her work.^ He was joined by many of the other scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project under him in Chicago.

In 1945, O'Keeffe bought a second home, an abandoned hacienda[8] in Abiquiu, some 16 miles (26 km) south of Ghost Ranch.[8] .The Abiquiu house was renovated through 1948 and became the setting for many later paintings.^ MANY PHOTOS of these SECRET PAINTINGS WE, the above mentioned and I, were 'fortunate' enough to be ALLOWED to go through...

.She developed an intense interest in what is called the Black Place northeast of Youngsville between Santa Fe and Taos in northern New Mexico, which she photographed with Eliot Parker in 1948, 1953, 1959, and 1977. O'Keeffe said that the Black Place resembles "a mile of elephants with grey hills and white sand at their feet."^ The ELEPHANT man who was disfigured in the head said: I AM A MAN And so did thousands of Black Men in the 60s on big signs.

[7]O'Keefe insisted on being physically close to the landscapes that she painted so that she could produce quality work. At times the wind was so strong that she while painting could hardly hold on the easel. As the heat from the sun became intense, at times she had to crawl under her car for shade relief. The Black Place still remains remote and uninhabited. There is also a White Place, with white rock formation located near her Ghost Ranch. .In 1977, O'Keeffe said that the "cliffs over there are almost painted for you -- you think -- until you try to paint them."^ As Vera Susa said, if you have a specific question, ok, FINE, but to post your "skepticism" and "caution" tells us you think we are stupid.

While O'Keeffe was spending the summer of 1946 in New Mexico, Stieglitz suffered a cerebral thrombosis. She quickly flew to New York to be with him. He died on July 13, 1946. She took his ashes to Lake George and buried them at the foot of a tall pine tree beside the waters. .Although separated for long periods through the years, Stieglitz had taken care of many business details for O'Keeffe.^ After several years as an exile in Berlin, Moholy was invited by the architect Walter Gropius to teach at the Bauhaus from 1923 to 1928, the most fertile period of Moholy%27s career.

^ The most obvious characteristic of the work of this period is a certain sense of consolidation%3A the drawing together of the threads of a long and varied career.

In 1949, O'Keeffe moved permanently to New Mexico. .During the 1950s she produced a series of paintings featuring the architectural forms--patio wall and door--of her adobe house in Abiquiu.^ CP%3EAfter 1913 the crystalline-layered architecture paintings for which he is best known predominate, reaching their pinnacle with the Halle series.

^ As his figural compositions developed, geometric configurations transformed into architectural elements (suggesting windows, doors, mirrors, paintings, and furniture) to create ambiguous space.

.Another distinctive painting of the decade was Ladder to the Moon, 1958. From her first world travels in the late 1950s, O'Keeffe produced an extensive series of paintings of clouds, such as Above the Clouds I, 1962/1963. These were inspired by her views from the windows of airplanes.^ He has travelled widely and produced paintings, watercolours and etchings of China, Venice, America and India.

^ Blackadder first experimented with printmaking during her student days in the early 1950s and her first prints were published in 1958.

^ His works include pre-First World War paintings and complex pieces of the mid-1930s, produced at a time of marital and stylistic crisis.

Below is an external link to a color image of one of these aerial cloudscape canvases.
In 1962, O'Keeffe was elected to the fifty-member American Academy of Arts and Letters. .In the fall of 1970, the Whitney Museum of American Art mounted the Georgia O'Keeffe Retrospective Exhibition, the first major showing of her work since 1946, the year Stieglitz died.^ This book accompanied a major retrospective exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery, London - the first British show to be devoted to Ensor since the exhibition of his works in 1946 at the National Gallery in London.

^ CP%3EThis publication accompanies a major retrospective of the work of Lucien Freud at the Tate Britain.

^ This book is published to accompany a major retrospective held at the Royal Academy of Arts to mark Auerbach%27s seventieth birthday.

This exhibit did much to revive her public career. It brought O'Keeffe to the attention of a new generation of women raised on the principles of feminism.
In 1971 O'Keeffe became aware that her eyesight was failing. At the age of 84, she was losing her central vision and only had peripheral sight, due to an irreversible eye degeneration disease. She stopped painting in 1972. Juan Hamilton, a young potter, appeared at her ranch house in 1973 looking for work. .She hired him for a few odd jobs and soon employed him full time.^ (Shell) What are the odds that such accidents below happens just in a few hrs time killing two 33 year old men?

He became her closest confidante, companion, and business manager until her death.
O'Keeffe dabbled in pottery herself, and had a large kiln installed at the ranch for firing pots. Even with her dimming eyesight, she was inspired by Hamilton and others to paint again. She hired a studio assistant to execute some of her ideas. During this time she agreed to accept interviews and other opportunities. In 1976 she wrote a book about her art, with Hamilton's help. She also allowed a film crew to do a documentary at Ghost Ranch.
.On January 10, 1977, President Gerald R. Ford presented O'Keeffe with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest honor awarded to American citizens.^ HARRISON FORD. GERALD FORD was president 38.

[9] In 1985, she was awarded the National Medal of Arts.
O'Keeffe became increasingly frail in her late 90s. She moved to Santa Fe, where she died on March 6, 1986, at the age of 98. O'Keeffe continued to paint only weeks before her death.[10] In accordance with her instructions, she was cremated the next day. Juan Hamilton walked to the top of the Pedernal Mountain and scattered her ashes to the wind, over her beloved "faraway".

Legacy

Following O'Keeffe's death, her family contested her will because codicils to it made in the 1980s had left all of her estate to Hamilton. The case was ultimately settled in July 1987.[11] The case, which was settled out of court, became famous as case law in estate planning.[12][13] A substantial part of her estate's assets were transferred to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, established in Santa Fe in 1997 to perpetuate O'Keeffe's artistic legacy. .These assets included a large body of her work, photographs, archival materials, and her Abiquiu house, library, and property.^ The result is a compelling collection of portraits of artists, photographed in their studios surrounded by their work and materials.

^ Produced in collaboration with the artist and richly illustrated with photographs from his personal archives, the book contains a detailed analysis of Freud%27s work and notes on the included images.

.Some rocks from Ghost Ranch (a known fossiliferous locality) were found to contain remains of a very strange animal from the Rhaetian (Late Triassic), the likes of which had never been deemed to exist.^ Techniques developed by CSIRO to locate oil deposits have found a new use in some very old caves.

At first glance, it resembled a smallish theropod dinosaur. But actually, it was a kind of very primitive crocodile that had evolved convergently to a bipedal dinosaur-like habitus. The fossil animal was named Effigia okeeffeae ("O'Keeffe's Ghost") in January 2006, "in honor of Georgia O'Keeffe for her numerous paintings of the badlands at Ghost Ranch and her interest in the Coelophysis Quarry when it was discovered".[14]
Lifetime Television produced a biopic of Georgia O'Keeffe premiering on September 19, 2009, starring Joan Allen as O’Keeffe, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Stieglitz, Henry Simmons as Jean Toomer, Ed Begley, Jr. as Stieglitz' brother Lee, and Tyne Daly as Mabel Dodge Luhan.[15]
In 1991, the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) aired the American Playhouse production "A Marriage: Georgia O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz," starring Jane Alexander as Georgia O'Keeffe and Christopher Plummer as Alfred Stieglitz.
