This information may change due to ongoing research. Glossary of Terms

In her earliest works, Georgia O’Keeffe sought to depict natural forces and forms. Whether abstract or more representational, her imagery remained rooted in her experience of the landscape. Black Spot No. 3 is one of three paintings featuring a similar motif and is among the earliest of the artist’s abstract works.
