Georgia O'Keeffe, Summer days, 1936
Oil on canvas, 91.4 x 77.2 cm
Collection Doris Bry, New York, for Georgia O'Keeffe

I have picked flowers where I found them – have picked up sea shells and rocks and pieces of wood that I liked ... When I found the beautiful white bones on the desert I picked them up and took them home too ... I have used these things to say what is to me the wideness and wonder of the world as I live in it ... I was most interested in the holes in the bones – what I saw through them – particularly the blue from holding them up in the sun against the sky ... They were most wonderful against the Blue – that Blue that will always be there as it is now after all man's destruction is finished.

Georgia O'Keeffe, 1944
