I visited this early Georgie O'Keeffe painting from her 1917 Nude Series four times during my walk through the remarkable Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe New Mexico. Off of the internet and in real life, this watercolor fades and floods more delicately and the paper crinkles outward beneath the red smudge, radiating from this painful moment on the canvas. It lay in stark contrast to her later, better known flowers. I prefer this early series and its suggestions of something harsh, something hidden, something loving. It all seems very troubling and sexy.
