Tony Vaccaro: O'Keeffe and "the Smokestack", 1960

Portrait of O'Keeffe walking at the base of the "smoke stack" at "the White Place;" she is dressed in a black wrap dress, her Hector Aguilar belt, and a white broad-brimmed hat, landscape of white limestone cliffs, spires, and Hoodoos.


While living in New Mexico, Georgia O’Keeffe’s relationship with nature deepened as she spent extended amounts of time in the landscape, exploring the rivers, canyons, and painted cliffs that made up her surroundings during numerous camping and day trips. As a result, O’Keeffe created hundreds of paintings and drawings inspired by nature. O’Keeffe in the Landscape explores these excursions through the photography of her friends and the personal effects she brought with her on her trips, including camping gear and clothing. The exhibition will be on view at The O’Keeffe Welcome Center in Abiquiú, New Mexico from April 19, 2022 through April 11, 2023. The exhibition is free and open to the general public.


The O’Keeffe Welcome Center is the starting point for tours of The O’Keeffe  Home & Studio. While The O’Keeffe Welcome Center is free and open to the public, tours of The O’Keeffe Home & Studio require advanced reservations which can be made here.
