Devoted to the internationally known female modernist painter, the Georgia O’Keefe Museum is the most visited art museum in the state of New Mexico. O’Keefe’s works are instantly recognizable for their style and subject matter, and seeing them housed in this Pueblo Revival-style museum is as close as a visitor can get to seeing the paintings in their natural element. Stroll through the galleries and take in the large-scale depictions of flowers, leaves, rocks, shells, bones, and other natural forms that are found in the New Mexican landscape.
The museum owns a staggering 1,149 O’Keefe paintings, drawings, and sculptures dating from 1901 to 1984—the year of the artists retirement due to failed eyesight. In addition to O’Keefe’s works, visitors can also often see exhibitions of works by her contemporaries and living artists, including Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol.
