You may known 20th century artist Georgia O'Keeffe as the woman who painted numerous flower studies in her time. However, as of this week, she is also the holder of a new auction record for the most expensive work of art by a woman. The painting pictured, entitled "Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1", was purchased for $44.4 million at a Sotheby’s auction, nearly tripling what the house projected it would sell for. It is also a staggering four times higher than the previous title holder, an untitled painting by Joan Mitchell that sold for $11.9 million. Georgia O'Keeffe was a pioneer of females in the arts, and it is completely exciting to see her continue to be a major trailblazer nearly 30 years after her death.
