This beautiful image was created by Georgia O’Keeffe soon after her return to New York City from Texas at the invitation of art dealer and photographer Alfred Stieglitz, whom she would marry several years later. It is from the very earliest part of her career, the first decade in which she seriously identified as an artist.

Its remarkably light-filled palette contrasts with the Gallery’s 1931 painting by O’Keeffe, Jawbone and Fungus.

The Memorial Art Gallery is deeply grateful to Anne Whitman, whose commitment to the Rochester community motivated her to leave this treasure from her collection to an institution that would share it with visitors for many generations to come.
