Georgia O Keeffes Seashell Paintings

Shop Coastal Decor

I've always loved Georgia O'Keeffe's flower paintings, and only recently did I discover these gorgeous seashell paintings of hers on Art.com.

Georgia O'Keeffe shells
Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986) was the first woman to have her own exhibition at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, and like her flowers, she painted the seashells as large close-ups in slight abstraction.

She painted them huge. "So you cannot ignore their beauty!" In her own words.

I used to have an O'Keefe reproduction, when I was into Southwest theme, I owned her cow skull painting. By the way, I just noticed that you are from the coast of Rhode Island...luv, luv, luv your home! Is it in Newport? I'm curious because I have family in East Greenwich and I lived with them for a couple of months, but decided to move back to Southern California. I still visit occasionally.

Thanks, Maya! Those are great looking prints, I have never seen these by Georgia before. They would look great in my beachy room. I wish I had more wall space in there to diplay more. Love them! Thank you for stopping by.
