"Cool" Winter Scenes
Black Door with Snow, 1953-55
In 1945, Georgia O’Keeffe bought a tumbledown compound on the remote high-desert plateau of northern New Mexico. Within its walls she discovered a large wooden door that would become one of her most enduring images over the next decade.
The door opened onto a wide patio, where the artist watched the ever-changing shadows that transformed the space into an abstract puzzle of geometric shapes.
Between 1949 and 1960, O’Keeffe painted the door 22 times in various weather conditions, explaining, ‘I am always trying to paint that door — I never quite get it.’
