GEORGIA O KEEFFE by Joan Didion, Ram s Head White Hollyhock and Little Hills 1935 by Georgia O Keeffe. Where I was born and where and how I have lived is unimportant Georgia O Keeffe. told us in the book of paintings and words published in her ninetieth year on earth She. seemed to be advising us to forget the beautiful face in the Stieglitz photographs She. appeared to be dismissing the rather condescending romance that had attached to her by. then the romance of extreme good looks and advanced age and deliberate isolation It is. what I have done with where I have been that should be of interest I recall an August. afternoon in Chicago in 1973 when I took my daughter then seven to see what Georgia. O Keeffe had done with where she had been One of the vast O Keeffe Sky Above Clouds. canvases floated over the back stairs in the Chicago Art Institute that day dominating what. seemed to be several stories of empty light and my daughter looked at it once ran to the. landing and kept on looking Who drew it she whispered after a while I told her I need. to talk to her she said finally, My daughter was making that day in Chicago an entirely unconscious but quite basic. assumption about people and the work they do She was assuming that the glory she saw in. the work reflected a glory in its maker that the painting was the painter as the poem is the. poet that every choice one made alone every word chosen or rejected every brush. stroke laid or not laid down betrayed one s character Style is character It seemed to me. that afternoon that I had rarely seen so instinctive an application of this familiar principle. and I recall being pleased not only that my daughter responded to style as character but. that it was Georgia O Keeffe s particular style to which she responded this was a hard. woman who had imposed her 192 square feet of clouds on Chicago.

Hardness has not been in our century a quality much admired in women nor in the past. twenty years has it even been in official favor for men When hardness surfaces in the very. old we tend to transform it into crustiness or eccentricity some tonic pepperiness to be. indulged at a distance On the evidence of her work and what she has said about it. Georgia O Keeffe is neither crusty nor eccentric She is simply hard a straight shooter a. woman clean of received wisdom and open to what she sees This is a woman who could. early on dismiss most of her contemporaries as dreamy and would later single out one she. liked as a very poor painter And then add apparently by way of softening the judgment. I guess he wasn t a painter at all He had no courage and I believe that to create one s. own world in any of the arts takes courage This is a woman who in 1939 could advise her. admirers that they were missing her point that their appreciation of her famous flowers was. merely sentimental When I paint a red hill she observed coolly in the catalogue for an. exhibition that year you say it is too bad that I don t always paint flowers A flower touches. almost everyone s heart A red hill doesn t touch everyone s heart This is a woman who. could describe the genesis of one of her most well known paintings the Cow s Skull Red. White and Blue owned by the Metropolitan as an act of quite deliberate and derisive. orneriness I thought of the city men I had been seeing in the East she wrote They talked. so often of writing the Great American Novel the Great American Play the Great. American Poetry So as I was painting my cow s head on blue I thought to myself I ll. make it an American painting They will not think it great with the red stripes down the sides. Red White and Blue but they will notice it, Cow s Skull Red White and Blue Georgia O Keeffe 1918.

I can paint one of those dismal colored paintings like the men the woman who regarded. herself always as an outsider remembers thinking one day in 1922 and she did a painting of. a shed all low toned and dreary with the tree beside the door She called the act of. rancor The Shanty and hung it in her next show The men seemed to approve of it she. reported fifty four years later her contempt undimmed They seemed to think that maybe I. was beginning to paint That was my only low toned dismal colored painting. Some women fight and others do not Like so many successful guerrillas in the war. between the sexes Georgia O Keeffe seems to have been equipped early with an. immutable sense of who she was and a fairly clear understanding that she would be. required to prove it On the surface her upbringing was conventional She was a child on the. Wisconsin prairie who played with china dolls and painted watercolors with cloudy skies. because sunlight was too hard to paint and with her brother and sisters listened every night. to her mother read stories of the Wild West of Texas of Kit Carson and Billy the Kid She told. adults that she wanted to be an artist and was embarrassed when they asked what kind of. artist she wanted to be she had no idea what kind She had no idea what artists did She. had never seen a picture that interested her other than a pen and ink Maid of Athens in. one of her mother s books some Mother Goose illustrations printed on cloth a tablet cover. that showed a little girl with pink roses and the painting of Arabs on horseback that hung in. her grandmother s parlor At thirteen in a Dominican convent she was mortified when the. sister corrected her drawing At Chatham Episcopal Institute in Virginia she painted lilacs and. sneaked time alone to walk out to where she could see the line of the Blue Ridge Mountains. on the horizon At the Art Institute in Chicago she was shocked by the presence of live.
