American Icons: Georgia O’Keeffe’s Skull Paintings

Studio 360

"The men were all talking about the great American novel, the great American play...the great American everything," said Georgia O'Keeffe. "So I thought, I'll make it an American painting." O'Keeffe painted cow and deer skulls floating over delicate abstract landscapes of the New Mexico desert. Produced by Ann Heppermann and Kara Oehler.
