New treasure for museum

In the know. In the Times.

An anonymous donor has given a multi-million dollar Georgia O’Keeffe painting to the Museum of Fine Arts in downtown St Petersburg.  This is the third O’Keeffe painting the museum now has on display.  This newest painting, a landscape scene of the New Mexico terrain, captures the colors of the sandstone desert and wispy clouds in the sky.  Read more about Georgia O’Keeffe and her controversial fame as an artist in today’s Times - “Museum gets new treasure” on page 1A - and go see her paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts.  What do you find inspiring about O’Keeffe?
