Georgia O’Keeffe was fascinated with what she called “the idea that music could be translated into something for the eye.” Modern artists such as O’Keeffe admired music because it is expressive and can communicate powerful emotions, even when it doesn’t have words or suggest specific images. For Music, Pink and Blue No.2, O’Keeffe was interested in the relationships between music, nature, color, and form.

O’Keeffe used organic shapes and vivid colors to suggest the forms she saw in nature. Soft shapes spread across the canvas from top to bottom in pink, blue, green, and lavender. The combination of colors and forms creates visual rhythms and harmonies similar to those you can hear in music.
