Purchase, U.S. State Department Collection, 1948
Cos Cob is typical of Georgia O’Keeffe’s best-known works: isolated, cropped, up-close images of flowers and plants, rendered in a simplified manner. The painting depicts a skunk cabbage from an early spring garden and is from a series of skunk cabbage paintings from the 1920s, the decade in which O’Keeffe achieved recognition as one of America’s most important artists.
The title Cos Cob, inscribed by O’Keeffe on the painting’s back, refers to a section of Greenwich, Connecticut, which O’Keeffe visited. From 1890 until 1920, Cos Cob had been an art colony for American Impressionists such as Childe Hassam. During that time, the town was changing from a small farming and fishing community to the rich New York suburb that it remains today.
En la mitología griega, las Dríades son las ninfas de los robles en particular y de los árboles en general. Surgieron de un árbol llamado «Árbol de las Hespérides». Algunas de ellas iban al Jardín de las Hespérides para proteger las manzanas de oro que en él había. Las dríades no son inmortales, pero pueden vivir mucho tiempo.
