Perspective of Georgia O'Keeffe
Impact on the 1920's
The art that she exhibited and showed in New York, one of the major cities of this time, could have encouraged the thought and feeling of breaking out of the common. Her artwork was different than other pieces of work, and the fact that she was a female artist, and a successful one, also goes along with the idea that in the era, women could finally do what they wanted and break through expectations set for them.
