Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986) O’Keeffe was the best-known female American painter of the twentieth century. In 1916 she met Alfred Stieglitz, a pioneering photographer and advocate of modern art, who she soon married. In 1929 she visited Taos, returned frequently during the 1930s, and settled in New Mexico after Stieglitz’s death in 1946. She enjoyed retrospective exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Modern Art—their first for a woman—and the Whitney Museum cataloged her work. Karsh photographed O’Keeffe at Ghost Ranch, her home in New Mexico. His study of her hands echo those Stieglitz had made earlier.
