SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A collection of rarely seen watercolors painted by Georgia O’Keeffe during her time in West Texas will be part of a new exhibition at the O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe.

The artwork will be on display April 29 through the end of October.

The watercolors were created about a century ago when O’Keeffe was teaching art at what is now Texas A&M; University.

The artwork includes landscapes, abstractions and nudes and curators say the pieces mark a defining moment in the American painter’s commitment to the abstraction she came to be known for.

The O’Keeffe Museum says it holds the majority of work she created during this period, but the show will also include pieces on loan from the Amarillo Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art and others.
