Heather | 8271 comments You got it, Geoffrey! Nobody else guessed but first answer! Good job!

Now, what’s it called? 😉

I assume this is O’Keefe too?
And is this New York?

Only one thing: it's recorded in a restaurant while people are eating you have to put yourself over the sound of cutlery ;-)

Yes, Dirk, that is her piece as well. I am familiar with her city scenes as I like them so much. Great artist. The city stuff I believe she did when she taught at the girl's school but I could be wrong. It was in her 20's

Heather | 8271 comments I really like her as an artist but was only familiar with her later works. I’m glad I stumbled on this one, I do like it a lot, too!

I recently went to an O'Keefe exhibit at the New Britain Museum of American Art, and they had that painting (or some work that is very similar) hanging in the exhibit. The blank red sign on the left said "Stieglitz Photography", and that was the building where Stieglitz had his studio in New York City.

The exhibit had traveled from the Crystal Bridges Museum which was founded with the Walmart fortune. It will be in Connecticut until mid-June.

Geoffrey Aronson (geaaronson) | 930 comments O'Keefe and Stieglitz were lovers and then married, I believe. Stieglitz had the first photographic gallery in the USA at the beginning of the 20th century and was a kick ass photographer in his own right. He gave her a show or two and was also instrumental in bringing then contemporary art to the USA from Europe in his gallery. He also published one of the first fine art photography magazines in the USA and showcase Kasebier's work and Steichen's.

You got the city, Connie...NYC and that's cool to know what the sign read. Thank you for sharing that! It's awesome you got that experience, too!

Interesting tidbit of information, Geoffrey. Thank you for filling us (me) in on some things I didn't know. I like trivia and details like that. :)
