Of the painting, the artist said it
all: "Nobody sees a flower, really, it is so small. So I said
to myself - I'll paint what I see - what the flower is to me but I'll
paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it.
I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of
flowers." - Georgia O'Keefe, 1887-1986
A reproduction of the painting as well
as the dress can be found at New York Couture in the virtual world,
