Georgia O'Keeffe (American, 1887–1986). Hibiscus with Plumeria, 1939.
Intrigued by the opportunity to paint tropical flora, Georgia O'Keeffe accepted an offer posed by the Dole Pineapple Company to travel to Hawaii and create paintings for an advertising campaign in 1939. She visited Maui, Oahu, Hawaii, and Kauai, painting the islands' dramatic gorges, waterfalls, and tropical flowers, among them Hibiscus with Plumeria. Pink and yellow petals towering against a clear blue sky transform the delicate blossoms into a joyous monumentality. But of the twenty canvases of Hawaii she completed, none showed a pineapple. Only after Dole had one flown to New York did she finally, if reluctantly, paint the desired fruit.
This print has been produced with the highest quality pigmented, non-toxic, environmentally friendly ink with a color permanence rating of at least 200-year stability.
