Georgia expresses the beauty of white flowers in a variety of viewpoints that reveal their sublime geometries in the process of their outbreak.
A painting of petunias executed in 1926 still marks an aesthetic reference to photography by showing side by side a pale pink flower and a dark purple flower that is somehow its negative. This oil on canvas 76 x 91 cm was sold for $ 4.1 million including premium by Sotheby's on May 19, 2010.
Georgia's favorite flower is the calla lily, whose name means beautiful in its etymology. She is sometimes nicknamed the Lady of the Lily by her friends.
An oil on canvas 81 x 43 cm painted in 1927 is starring a calla lily with its white petals opening on a yellow pistil. It is estimated $ 8M for sale by Sotheby's in New York on May 20, lot 14. Georgia particularly enjoyed that artwork which she kept in her personal collection.
She discovers Taos two years later. A datura painted in very large size in 1934, 122 x 107 cm, was sold for $ 44.4M including premium by Sotheby's on November 20, 2014.
