Georgia O’Keeffe Visions of Hawaii exhibit
New York Botanical Garden
Georgia O’Keeffe traveled to Hawaii in 1939 on commission from the Hawaiian Pineapple Company (predecessor of Dole). She was charged with creating paintings to be used in the pineapple company’s advertising. The photo to the left below is the O’Keeffe painting “Pineapple Bud” which the Hawaiian Pineapple Company used in their ads. To the right is a pineapple plant that was part of the NYBG exhibit.
