Statement of Significance (as of designation - August 6, 1998):
Georgia O'Keeffe occupies a pivitol, pioneering position in American art. She created her own style by adapting early modernist tenets to quintessentially American motifs. Her stark paintings of cattle skulls bleached by the desert sun are familar to all. From 1949 until her death in 1984, O'Keeffe lived and worked here at Abiguiu. The buildings and their surroundings, along with the views they command, inspired many of her paintings, and continue to provide great insight into her vision.The home and studio are maintained by the Georgia O'Keeffe Foundation, and are open to the public.
