White Canadian Barn II

Georgia O'Keeffe American

Not on view

Seeking to escape the pressures of her life with Alfred Stieglitz, O'Keeffe drove to the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec, Canada in the summer of 1932 for a few weeks respite. There she painted a series of seven barns whose austere design and blackened doors and windows prefigure her later series of New Mexico patio doors.
