‘Lost’ Georgia O’Keefe painting brings $225,150

Skinner, Inc., one of our favorite auction houses for the depth and breadth of their sales, yet again earned its reputation for being a savvy player in the fine art market. Its Jan. 29 American & European Paintings & Prints auction featured a number of important works and more than its share of curiosities.

Chief among these was the fantastic ‘rediscovered’ painting by American masterpiece artist Georgia O’Keeffe. Titled “,” the painting was considered lost since the mid-1950s. It was last known to have been purchased by a Cape Cod
collector. The piece is representative of O’Keeffe’s early work,
describing “nature in her simplest appearance” and is indicative of
O’Keeffe’s artistic relationship with modernist painter Arthur Dove.

Take note that, once again, it’s the hardworking, aggressive auction houses like Skinner that are discovering and selling these dazzling pieces.
