On Style


The great American artist Georgia O'Keefe said: "Art is important in everyday life. When you buy a pair of shoes or place a window or address a letter or comb your hair, consider it carefully so that it looks well."

Ravishing pictures of O'Keefe, particularly the first.

It's so seldom, it seems, that she's portrayed as happy, smiling and engaged. I had posted a picture of her with her long time lover, photographer, Alfred Steigletz, a few weeks back (http://theerrantaesthete.com/2009/01/13/9161/) and it, too, conveyed this wonderfully impish quality about her that was utterly charming.

Hi E.A.
Glad you like these picture, I had enjoyed your post too. You know Stieglitz and O'Keefe lived together in Lake George, NY but she found it too cold and dark, and moved out west. Having grown up in upstate NY I know what she meant!
