It’s not enough to be nice in life. You’ve got to have nerve.
Happy birthday, Georgia O’Keeffe. The celebrated modernist painter (born November 15, 1887) studied at the Art Institute of Chicago; taught art in Texas and South Carolina; lived with her husband, the photographer Alfred Stieglitz, in New York; spent time in Bermuda and Hawaii; and finally settled in New Mexico. Her autobiography, Georgia O’Keeffe, and published letters reveal the story of her extraordinary life.
