III. Read the following passage and choose the best answer to each question (10.0 points).
Georgia O’Keefe was born in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, in 1887. She studied art in Chicago and New York from
1904 to 1908. Beginning as an advertising illustrator, she supported herself until 1918 by teaching in various schools
and colleges in Texas. After that date, she devoted herself entirely to painting. Her paintings were first exhibited in
1916 at “291”, an experimental art gallery in New York City owned by Alfred Steiglitz, which was frequented by some
of the most influential artists of the time. O’Keefe married Steiglitz in 1924.
O’Keefe’s early paintings were mostly abstract designs. In the 1920s she produced depictions of flowers and
precise cityscapes of New York City. Whether painting flowers or buildings, she captured their beauty by intuitively
magnifying their shapes and simplifying their details.
O’Keefe’s style changed dramatically in 1929 during a visit to New Mexico. She was enchanted by the stark
but beautiful landscapes under the bright Southwestern sun, and she then adopted her characteristic style.
Thereafter, she most often painted desert landscapes, often with the blanched skull of a longhorn in the foreground.
O’Keefe’s paintings were exhibited annually at several New York galleries until 1946, and she is represented
in the permanent collections of most major American museums. In her later years, she settled in Taos, New Mexico,
becoming the dean of Southwestern painters and one of the best known of American artists.
