Lake George Reflection1921-1922 by Georgia O'Keeffe

This painting that can be viewed horizontally or vertically sold for $12.9 million at a New York City auction.
Lake George Reflection was offered at Christie’s on Thursday. [May, 2016]
Measuring 5' by 3', it was inspired by O’Keeffe’s visits to Alfred Stieglitz’s family compound on the upstate New York lake. She married the photographer in 1924.
Horizontally, it’s a landscape of rolling hills reflected in a body of water. Vertically, it becomes abstract, more reminiscent of her iconic flower paintings.
O’Keeffe herself hung it vertically when it was first exhibited in a New York gallery in 1923.

According to Christie’s, O’Keefe “intended it to be hung in both portrait and landscape form, so that it embodied both her abstract and representational painting.” http://www.landvest.com/blog/2016/05/art-reflects-life-landvestchristies-bring-lake-george-to-the-global-market/
