Label Copy

Needing a break from her surroundings in Lake George, New York, Georgia O’Keeffe stayed in Taos, New Mexico, from May to August of 1929, her first extended visit. After 1929, O’Keeffe spent her summers in New Mexico and moved there permanently in 1949. She often painted at Ghost Ranch, particularly during the summer months, and bought a small home and acres of land from Arthur Pack, the founder of Nature magazine. Four years before she began to live in the region full-time, in 1945, she purchased a second home in the town of Abiquiu, where she had an ample enough water supply to keep a garden. The architecture and light of O’Keeffe’s courtyard in her Abiquiu home resulted in more than twenty paintings, finished between 1946 and 1960. In the Patio I is the artist’s earliest painting of this special space.
