“Paint Like” Georgia O’Keeffe, Jack-in-the-Pulpit No. IV (1930)
Partnership with DukeCreate & VisArts
About the Workshop
Georgia O’Keeffe is known to many as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. She is known for her paintings of enlarged flowers and city imagery. In 1930, she painted a series of six canvases depicting a jack-in-the-pulpit. In this workshop, we will be painting Jack-in-the-Pulpit No. IV, 1930, a work that represents her process and development of detail and abstraction.
