Georgia O'Keeffe was born in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin in 1887. Georgia was a passionate artist, but in the early 1900s women were not taken seriously as artists. She attended the Art Students League in New York. She struggled in New York, and moved from job to job occasionally working as a commercial artist. She eventually developed her own unique style. A friend sent the artist’s sketches to an art gallery owner named Alfred Stieglitz who began to display them. Georgia was furious when she found out, but agreed to let him continue displaying her work. Georgia and Alfred fell in love and married. Georgia O’Keefe was very influenced by the landscapes of New York and New Mexico. During her lifetime she achieved fame and fortune, selling hundreds of her paintings, paintings, many which are now displayed in museums throughout the world. Georgia O’Keefe died in New Mexico in 1986, aged 99.
