About

This oil painting of an open clam shell is a principle example of an O'Keeffe still-life: a magnified and central form comprising stylistic elements of both precisionism and abstraction. A sliver of the inside of an empty clam shell is visible through the ajar shell. Tonal gradations of dark and light grays, pale blues, and whites define the silvery and smooth outside of the shell. Warmer hues add depth and shade to the inside of the shell, framing a dark center which represents the hinge area of the clam.
SKU: 8993
Creator: Georgia O'Keeffe
Date: 1926
Original Medium: pastel over white ground on artist's board
Original Size: 18 1/2 x 13 in.
Location: Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free matt board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
