O’Keeffe’s love of nature and dislike towards realism inspired her unique abstract paintings of flowers. Abstraction White Rose
depicts a close up of a flower that becomes a white water whirlpool, thanks to the gentle rotating vortex effect provided by the natural curve of the petals.

Date of work
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.”
