Georgia O’Keefe’s Abiquiu Home

Modernist artist Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) bought her house in Abiquiu, New Mexico in 1945. The ruined 5,000-square-foot Spanish Colonial-era Abiquiu compound took 4 years to restore, after which she moved from New York to make New Mexico her permanent home in 1949. She lived at the Abiquiu or Ghost Ranch houses until 1984, when she moved to Santa Fe where she lived until her death in 1986.

New-York based photographer Brittany Ambridge captured these shots of her quiet and beautifully desolate home that now functions as a site for museum tours.
