Description: 

Georgia O'Keefe has been recognized as the "Mother of American Modernism". The iris was favored by O'Keefe and played a key role in her work for many years. In Black Iris III, the representation abstracts the subject matter by enlarging the petals far beyond life size. The medium for the original painting was oil on canvas and is dated 1926.
