O'Keeffe is celebrated as one of the great American modernists and a visionary of the American Southwest, the land with which she is often associated (though it was not until 1929 that she first visited New Mexico, and 1949 that she moved there). Yellow Jonquils # 3 dates from an earlier time period when O'Keeffe was based in New York and married to photographer and gallerist Alfred Stieglitz. In this work, she crystallizes in simplified form the beauty and majesty of nature, painting Yellow Jonquils #3 during visits to Lake George in upstate New York where Stieglitz had a home.
