The Year of the Woman
1000Museums joined our partner museums all over the world in designating 2020 as the Year of the Woman. Each month of the year features a different woman artist, highlighting her work and life. It's our little way of saying "thank you" to the women who paved the way...
HILMA AF KLINT
Perhaps no other artist deserves the title of American Artist more than Georgia O’Keeffe.
Unlike many of her contemporaries, O’Keeffe wasn’t inspired by French or Italian artists. She didn’t make the typical artist’s pilgrimage to the great cities of European art until later in life. She steadfastly separated herself from international art trends of her time, including Cubism. Instead, she was inspired by the natural and man-built beauty of North America. She was inspired by flowers, lakes, deserts, big skies, sky-scrapers, and canyons.
