          Oil on canvas, 101.6 x 76.2 cm. Philadelphia Museum of Art; Bequest of Georgia O'Keeffe for the Alfred Stieglitz. Collection, 1987 1987-70-4 © Philadelphia Museum of Art

          O’Keeffe was constantly inspired by nature and hoped that her paintings of enlarged flowers would draw the attention of busy New Yorkers and encourage them to appreciate the beauty in intricacy of nature that might otherwise pass them by. This piece depicts a close up of two lilies, a regularly repeated subject that earned O’Keeffe the nickname ‘The Lady of the Lily’, first coined by caricaturist Miguel Covarrubias in the New Yorker.

          Artist details

          Georgia O’Keeffe is best known for her paintings of magnified flowers, animal skulls and New Mexico desert landscapes. O’Keeffe made her debut in 1916 and was immediately recognised as a trailblazing artist, while today her legacy as an American art icon and a pioneer of twentieth-century art is widely recognised.

          ‘Men put me down as the best woman painter I think I’m one of the best painters.’ Georgia O’Keeffe.
