Abiquiu, New Mexico
The home and studio of the artist Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) in Abiquiu is one of the most important artistic sites in the southwestern United States. The buildings and the views they command of the magnificent landscape that inspired many of O'Keeffe's best-known paintings give insight into the vision and process of a major figure in 20th-century American art. O'Keeffe purchased the property from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Santa Fe in 1945, after eyeing the house and grounds - and attempting to buy them - for 10 years. O'Keeffe moved permanently from New York to New Mexico in 1949. The house in Abiquiu became her primary residence until 1984, when she moved to Santa Fe two years prior to her death at the age of 98.
