Georgia O’Keeffe and Her Controversial Life
“I get out my work and have a show for myself before I have it publicly. I make up my own mind about it–how good or bad or indifferent it is. After that the critics can write what they please. I have already settled it for myself so flattery and criticism go down the same drain and I am quite free.” (Women in History) After reading this you probably think this was said by a modern, liberal person but it’s the complete opposite. This was said by Georgia O’Keeffe an artist born on a farm in Wisconsin in 1887 who impacted society with her different forms of art and the way she carried herself. This might come as a shock to you because she is a women and the period in which he grew up women were not allowed to express themselves in ways in which she did. Women in that time period had to be feminine and lady like, but that’s what made Georgia stand out.
