Yes, today’s the 121st anniversary of her birth, but still…
I just checked and saw I’d already mentioned the time at New York’s Whitney Museum when I convinced a couple of people that the original title of a particularly blatant O’Keefe painting was “Swear To God, It’s a Flower.”
Okay, so this is presumably analogous to hiding naughty magazines under the mattress. Except since they’re bees, their version of “the birds and the bees” involves flowers.
But… I’m wondering about the specific choice of Georgia O’Keefe here: yes, officially she painted pictures of flowers, but we all know better. Which weirdly enough brings us back to magazines boys (stereo)typically hide under their mattresses.
Am I overcomplicating this, or was Wayno?
Fun Fact: A couple of years ago at the Whitney Museum in New York, I convinced a couple of people that the original title of a particularly blatant O’Keefe painting was “Swear To God, It’s a Flower.”
