But just in photographs, which were smaller, not as big as what O’ Keeffe was painting, also, O’ Keeffe studied under an artist named Arthur Wesley Dow.
但只是在体积更小的照片中，不像O’ Keeffe画的画那么大，还有，O’ Keeffe在一位叫做Arthur Wesley Dow的画家手下学习过。
That’s DOW, D-O-W, who advocated focusing on simple basic forms, like the lines of a flower and its petals
and he wanted forms to be isolated from their original settings.
He believed that, by doing that, an artist could reveal an object’s, its essence.
He’d do things like...like. .have his students take a simple ordinary form,
like a leaf, and explore various ways of fitting all of it into a square, maybe bending it around to make the whole thing fit into the frame. Pierre?
It sounds like maybe O’ Keeffe borrowed most of her ideas.
The stuff we might think of as being hers, she just got them from other people, she didn’t really have a style of her own.
Well, virtually all artists are influenced by other artists,
by their predecessors, by their contemporaries, their teachers...artists build on what other artists have done.
