Arnold Abner Newman(3 March 1918 - June 6, 2006) was an American photographer,noted for his "Environmental portraits" of artists and politicians.
Newman found his vision in the empathy he felt for artists and theirwork. Although he photographed many personalities—Marlene Dietrich, John F. Kennedy, Harry S. Truman, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Arthur Miller, Marilyn Monroe, Ronald Reagan, Mickey Mantle, and Audrey Hepburn—he maintained that even if the subject is notknown, or is already forgotten, the photograph itself must still excite andinterest the viewer.
Newman is often creditedwith being the first photographer to use so-called Environmental portraiture,in which the photographer places the subject in a carefully controlled settingto capture the essence of the individual's life and work. Newman normallycaptured his subjects in their most familiar surroundings with representativevisual elements showing their professions and personalities.
Georgia Totto O'Keeffe (November 15, 1887 – March 6, 1986) was an American artist.She was best known for her paintings of enlarged flowers,New York skyscrapers,and New Mexicolandscapes. O'Keeffe has been recognized as the "Mother of Americanmodernism.
She moved to New York in1918 at Alfred Stieglitz's request and began working seriously as an artist.They developed a professional relationship—he promoted and exhibited herworks—and a personal relationship that led to their marriage in 1924. O'Keeffecreated many forms of abstract art, including close-ups of flowers, such as theRed Canna paintings,that many found to represent women's genitalia, although O'Keeffe consistentlydenied that intention. The reputation of the portrayal of women's sexuality wasalso fueled by explicit and sensuous photographs that Stieglitz had taken and exhibitedof O'Keeffe.
O'Keeffe and Stieglitzlived together in New York until 1929, when O'Keeffe began spending part of theyear in the Southwest, which served as inspiration for her paintings of New Mexico landscapes and images of animal skulls, such as Cow's Skull:Red, White, and Blue and Ram's Head White Hollyhock andLittle Hills. After Stieglitz's death, she lived permanently in New Mexicoat Georgia O'KeeffeHome and Studio in Abiquiú, until the lastyears of her life when she lived in Santa Fe. In 2014,O'Keeffe's 1932 painting Jimson Weed sold for$44,405,000, more than three times the previous world sale record for anyfemale artist. After her death, the Georgia O'Keeffe Museumwas established in Santa Fe.
