The Lawrence Tree, 1929.
as correctly oriented (it is often displayed upside down)
D.H. Lawrence had a ranch near Taos which O’Keeffe often visited. In O’Keeffe’s own words:
"…There was a long weathered carpenter’s bench under the tall tree in front of the little old house that Lawrence had lived in there. I often lay on that bench looking up into the tree…past the trunk and up into the branches. It was particularly fine at night with the stars above the tree."
Mistakenly hanging the painting with the perspective of facing the tree and looking up dates back to the 1930s, when O’Keeffe first wrote to exhibition officials to advise of the error. (source)
