Georgia O’Keeffe, Untitled (Hand), c. 1902. Gift of The Georgia O’Keeffe Foundation
O’Keeffe went to boarding school at the age of 14. In the very first day students were asked to draw plaster cast of a hand, which was criticized by the teacher. In few moths an artist improved her drawing skills and eventually her works were displayed among the best ones in the class.
