While Georgia O’Keefe is known for her ephemeral paintings of the Southwest, in 1939, at the age of 51, she decamped for Hawaii. Maui specifcally.
On her visit to Maui, Georgia O’Keeffe made excursions to Iao Valley. “Waterfall — No. III — Iao Valley, 1939” is one of a series of paintings that resulted. (The Honolulu Museum of Art will feature some of O’Keeffe’s Hawaii work in an exhibition that begins next July.) If you happen to be on the BIg Island at that time, be sure to check it out.
