Georgia O’Keefe is known for her gorgeous flower paintings and in ‘Red Hills and White Flower II’ (1949) she enters a new chapter of her life when she moved to New Mexico, sick of city life. O’Keeffe has a Model-A Ford as a mobile studio, where she could paint beautiful landscapes from her window. She did not choose the most obvious areas, but the hidden gems on the land.
This work is painted in the Precisionist style, which was one of the first indigenous modern art movements in America characterised by smooth and clearly defined forms.
