Red and Yellow Cliffs1940 by Georgia O'Keeffe
"In 1940, O’Keeffe purchased a house at Ghost Ranch in the Chama River valley of New Mexico. She spent her summers and falls at Ghost Ranch, where she painted the breathtaking views, including these immense red, pink, and yellow striated cliffs that rose up 700 feet behind her house. Dotted with green shrubs, the landscape faithfully reproduces the vibrant colors of the American Southwest. ...Awed by these colorful cliffs, O’Keeffe painted them seven times." http://www.metmuseum.org
