Blouse1930 by Georgia O'Keeffe

Attributed to Georgia O’Keeffe

Circa 1930s

This machine-sewn, lightweight silk blouse is cut much like a man’s short-sleeved shirt and is finished with several rows of decorative topstitching in the same color thread around the garment’s edges. The mother-of-pear buttons, perhaps saved by the frugal O’Keeffe from other garments, are of two different designs, alternating down the front and creating a subtle pattern. She wears shirts similar to this one in several Stieglitz photographs taken at Lake George.
