Georgia O’Keeffe

The Lawrence Tree was painted in the summer of 1929 while O’Keefe was visiting D.H. Lawrence at his Kiowa Ranch during O’Keeffe’s first trip to New Mexico; the tree stands in front of the house. Dr. Beth Harris and Dr. Steven Zucker provide a description, historical perspective, and analysis of the work below:
