Blue Lines X1916 by Georgia O'Keeffe

[When Stieglitz died] O’Keeffe buried him in a plain pine coffin. It had a pink satin lining, and on the night before the funeral she ripped it out and sewed a new one from white linen. An anecdote, elegant though it might be, added that she did not cremate Stieglitz with her watercolor Blue Lines, as he’d asked her to years before, and that in the grieving days after his death she rang Norman and banished her from the gallery for good.
