Many art critics and others have suggested that Georgia O’Keeffe’s large flower images are very erotic in nature. Although O’Keeffe herself never admitted to any such intention, it isn’t difficult to imagine why the critics might have reached the conclusion they did (particularly in some cases). What do you think? Are these merely paintings of very enlarged flowers or do you see the images as erotic? And if so, do you think this was O’Keeffe’s intention—either consciously or subconsciously? Or is it something that is simply inherent in the sexual similarities that exist between flowers and humans? Does it matter?
