More Famous Artists in US History

american history, art

Georgia Totto O’Keeffe (November 15, 1887 – March 6, 1986) was one of America’s most famous women artists.   When we think of Georgia O’Keeffe  we think of sensual large floral paintings and bright daring colors.

Georgia once said “I’ll paint what I see-what the flower is to me but I’ll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking the time to look at it-I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers”. Another great quote that  Georgia is well known for is “To create one’s own world in any of the arts takes courage.”

Edward Weston 1938- 1958 was one of the greatest photographers in US history.  The birthplace of many of his images is the area around the west coast town of Monterey, California.  Many of Weston’s photographs that now sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars were printed in the Monterey Area.   Weston’s commanding series of seascapes and landscapes were taken in the place now known as the Point Lobos State Reserve.

In the spirit of Georgia O’Keeffe  and Edward Weston is the work of Vitaly Geyman, an internationally acclaimed fine art photographer.  Check out Vitaly Geyman’s  Flower Prints and  Black and White Prints.
