Cultural institutions around the world may still be shuttered due to COVID-19, but fortunately, there's still a way to browse renowned collections while practicing social distancing. Through Google Arts & Culture, you can virtually tour world-famous museums such as the Musée d'Orsay, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Uffizi Gallery. Now, the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico has made 1,100+ works of art by the modern American painter available to view online for free.

Artist Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) is one of the most famous women painters in the history of Western art, known in particular for her emphasis on composition and design over realistic depictions of subjects. The extensive digital collection encompasses some of her most significant works, including her flower paintings, abstractions, still lifes, and landscapes of the Southwestern United States. Additionally, visitors to the website can browse less-seen drawings from O'Keeffe's sketchbooks, photographs of her ranch in Taos, New Mexico, as well as her rare abstract sculptures.

The digital collection also features artwork from some of O'Keeffe's contemporaries, including her husband and photographer Alfred Stieglitz, and ceramicist Juan Hamilton. Each of the images features information on the art pictured so that viewers can learn remotely.

You can peruse the collection on the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum's website.
