Georgia O'Keeffe in New Mexico


I found this interview with Georgia O'Keefe a year or two ago on YouTube, & thought appropriate to post, as I just spent the day w/ my mom & grandmother up in O'Keefe Country at Abiquiu & Ghost Ranch. If you like Georgia O'Keefe, you'll love this video- she's 92 here & still quite spunky! I love the part where the interviewer says "It was nice of Steiglitz to let you go to New Mexico every summer...."  to which she replies, "Listen, he didn't let me go, I just went." I really admire O'Keefe, not just for her Paintings and her contributions to the Art world... but I've done a fair amount of reading about her life, and I think she was an incredibly strong woman, and quite ahead of her time.

I really love her work and respect her as a person. She was one of a kind for sure.
Thanks for the clip.

Thank you for this! I haven't seen this video in years. I adore her, too - and isn't her face, with all its wrinkles, absolutely gorgeous. What an inspiration!

I hope you, your mom, and your grandmother had a wonderful time together.

How could you not LOVE this woman? Thanks for this clip. I don't believe that I've ever seen it before, or at least in its entirety. This makes me want to get back to NM! I Love, Love, Love The Lawrence Tree. I am forever standing under pine trees and taking pictures aiming the camera up between the branches!

I so enjoyed this video! It made my morning!
