Label Copy

The land and the intense sun inspired O'Keeffe, and these factors continued to influence her paintings until her death. Abiquiu is located approximately fifty miles north of Santa Fe, and its outlying areas served as the inspiration for the minimalist landscape Purple Hills near Abiquiu. In September 1942, O’Keeffe wrote to her good friend Arthur Dove (1880–1946), “I wish you could see what I see out the window—the earth pink and yellow cliffs to the north—the full pale moon about to go down in an early morning lavender sky behind a very long beautiful tree covered mesa to the west—pink and purple hills in front and the scrubby fine dull green cedars—and a feeling of much space.”
