The Georgia O'Keefe musuem contains the largest collection of O'Keefes in the world--more than 80 works. Very few are the popular oil paintings she is most known for. A large amount are wood cuts she made while studying her trade. Some of her most famous works can be seen here like Jimson Weed. Other artists are represented as well--her mentor and her husband. You can watch a short film of her describing why she created her artwork. Don't bother with the gift shop. They don't have a big selection. You can find what you are looking for at the shops throughout downtown.
