Georgia O'Keeffe flower print
Black Petunia and White Morning Glory II
back of page is blank
1987 Vintage Book Plate, Published in the USA

By the end of Georgia O'Keeffe's 98 years, she had painted over 200 flower paintings. When her paintings were exhibited, they caused quite a sensation, causing reactions that range from critical acclaim to outrage to awe. Most of her paintings show the blossom in extreme close up and in minute detail. O'Keeffe was aiming for this reaction as she explains in this 1946 interview:
"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for a moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people...rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not."

Rescued from a large coverless 1987 book, this page shows Georgia O'Keeffe's vibrant flower painting! Perfect for framing!

Book plate is approximately 16" x 13."
In excellent vintage condition.


Excerpt from book:
"The plates have been made from 175-line screen separations laser- scanned directly from the master transparencies, and printed in four-color offset lithography...."
