Georgia O'Keeffe, an American, 20th century artist from Wisconsin was most famous for her innovative art depicting nature. Although she was trained traditionally, O'Keeffe experimented with her artwork for a few years and found the alternative to realism . . . abstraction. Her simplified artworks mostly consisted of landscapes, clouds, bones, and flowers but kept her viewers engaged within its unique composition and use of colors.
