But she painted these images in such a way that many people believed she was portraying sexual imagery.

    Throughout the 1850's a division in the country between North and South widened. However, in spite of the rising rhetoric, the state of Georgia was far from becoming a "war machine." In Marietta, the Georgia Military Institute went to the state for funds only three times between 1852 and 1863. Throughout the state, railroads were being built up for economic reasons, not reasons of war. Atlanta was concerned about fighting equipment for its newly formed fire department, not for some secret milita...

    Georgia O'Keefe is a renowned artist with her intelligent use of color and her interesting subject matter. Though she painted many things, her main focus seemed to be flowers in detail.

One of my favorite things about Georgia's works is her use of color in all of them. In Oriental Poppies (1928) she uses brilliant reds and oranges that make the poppies pop ou...
