On a Sunday afternoon at end of May 1917, Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) arrived at the home of the bank manager in Canyon, Texas, and convinced him to open the bank. She withdrew savings of $200, purchased a train ticket to New York to see her exhibit, and left the next morning on the early train.2 Her school term had just ended at West Texas State Normal College, where she directed the art department. Hers was the first, and only, 1-woman show held at Alfred Stieglitz's gallery, 291, where earlier Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso had their first exhibits in America.
