Crab’s Claw Ginger Hawaii by Georgia O’Keeffe

Bidding commences on 17 November through Phillips in New York


One of the most striking works to emerge from Georgia O’Keeffe’s nine-week sojourn to Hawaii in 1939, Crab’s Claw Ginger Hawaii comes to auction for the first time, carrying a top estimate of US$6 million. It was one of approximat­ely 20 oil paintings she produced while on a commission to create images for print advertisem­ents by Hawaiian Pineapple Company (now known as Dole), and was one of two works ultimately selected for its campaign. Formerly part of Dole’s corporate collection for 40 decades, this is an opportunit­y to acquire a work that perfectly captures O’Keeffe’s adventurou­s, independen­t spirit.
