One summer morning, Georgia O’Keeffe’s friend Maggie arrived at the artist’s New Mexico home with the flower that inspired this painting. Once the canvas was finished, O’Keeffe traded the sunflower—the model, not the painting—to Maggie’s young nephew for a stone he’d found. She kept it on her Ghost Ranch windowsill, with the rest of her desert treasures.
