About the Artwork

Georgia O’Keeffe, Front of Ranchos Church, 1930. Oil on canvas, 20 × 36 in. (51 × 91.5 cm). Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Promised gift of Bernard and Barbro Osher. © Georgia O’Keeffe Museum

Georgia O’Keeffe celebrated the New Mexico landscape in an important series of about eight paintings of the Spanish Colonial San Francisco de Asís, often called Ranchos Church. With its thick adobe walls, twin towers, and solid buttresses, the church impressed and inspired a generation of modernists—including O’Keeffe, along with photographers Ansel Adams and Paul Strand—who enshrined its iconic status.

This painting is the sole frontal view of the church from this series and a departure from O’Keeffe’s fragmentary images of the same subject. She wrote, “Most artists who spend any time in Taos have to paint it, I suppose, just as they have to paint a self-portrait. I had to paint it—the back of it several times, the front once.”
