Reflections

GOK-Christie's“Some such consciousness, it seems to me, is alive in the mystic and musical drawings of Georgia O’Keeffe. Here are emotional forms quite beyond the reach of conscious design, beyond the grasp of reason—yet strongly appealing to that apparently unanalyzable sensitivity in us through which we feel the grandeur and sublimity of life.” Wm. Murrell Fisher, Camera Work (#49/50, 1917)

Christie’s NY will be offering five O’Keeffe’s at their American Modern Sale, May 19, including the present works: (left) Blue I, 1916; (right) Red Hills with Pedernal, White Clouds, 1936.
