This is one of O’Keeffe’s famous enlarged flower compositions in which she wanted to encourage busy city dwellers to pay attention to the beauty within the natural world that they may not ordinarily stop to appreciate. She said that ‘nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small – we haven’t the time – and to see takes time…So I said to myself – I’ll paint what I see – what the flower is to me, but I’ll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking the time to see what I see of flowers’.
