Sunset, Long Island by Georgia O'Keeffe
Recognized as a mother of American modernism, Georgia O’Keeffe is best known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers, and New Mexico landscapes. One of her main goals was to abstract the natural world in order to make it even more appealing and her production is frequently associated with the history of abstract landscapes. Such is the case with her painting Sunset, Long Island where by the help of simple and flat, almost monochromatic surfaces the image of the setting sun dipping into the water of Hudson river stands before us.
