GEORGIA O’KEEFFE HOME AND STUDIO
- Georgia O'Keeffe
21120 U.S. 84 Abiquiú, New Mexico 87510
The Georgia O'Keeffe Home and Studio is located in the small village of Abiquiú in New Mexico. In New Mexico, she experimented with fresh colors, forms, and compositional strategies, and the house inspired many of her paintings such as a door through the patio wall and cottonwood tress growing in the Chama River Valley below her studio.
O'Keeffe purchased the land in 1943, and used it as her main residence and studio until 1984. She died in Santa Fe on March 6, 1986, at the age of 98.
Today, it is part of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, and the home and studio became a National Historic Landmark in 1998.
The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum owns a large body of her work such as photographs, archival materials, and her Abiquiú house, library, and property.
In 2014, after her death, O'Keeffe's 1932 painting “Jimson Weed” sold for $44,405,000, more than three times the previous world auction record for any female artist.
Visiting O'Keeffe's home and studio is the ultimate pilgrimage; life-changing inspiring.
