Georgia O'Keeffe. Mesa and Road East II, 1952. Oil on canvas, 26 x 36 inches. Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Gift of The Georgia O’Keeffe Foundation. © Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. [2006.5.235]
A winding road enters the scene from the base of the canvas in the center. It curves to the right before weaving off into the distance to the left. A large, light-colored mesa rises from the right side of the work, its hills sloping down towards the left. Several trees dot the landscape in the foreground, and the sky appears hazy.
