This exhibition is a tribute to an icon of 20th-century American art - Georgia O'Keeffe. She was one of the most legendary woman artists of all time, who had the unique ability to accurately record the quintessential beauty and unusual architecture of nature. Her main source of inspiration was northern New Mexico, which has become forever known as "O'Keeffe country". One of O'Keeffe's biggest challenges was to show that nature is no less beautiful, strong and powerful than human industrialization projects, during an era when factories were being built everywhere around the world, like mushrooms after a heavy rain. In 1929, she spent her first summer in New Mexico. From that time onwards, the harsh beauty and barren vastness of the desert, along with the humbling infinity of the sky, fascinated her for life. She bought a property called Ghost Ranch, learned to drive a car, and later moved to the desert for good. Looking at the works of O'Keeffe, one can almost sense the mysterious desert silence and the magnetic beauty of her surroundings.
