Georgia O’Keeffe’s Home

Take a look at the surroundings that inspired American painter Georgia O’Keeffe in her final years.

The adobe house in Santa Fe that O’Keeffe named Sol y Sombra (Sun and Shadow) and lived in briefly from the 1980s until her death at age 98, has been up for sale since 2021. The house, set on a 20-acre plot, hasn’t sold, and so the estate cut back the asking price from $22.6 million to $15 million, generating these photos of the property.

The online photos show spaces added by new owners. Paul Allen, a cofounder of Microsoft, bought the home in 2000 for a little more than $12 million. After his death in 2018, the Paul Allen Estate began selling its holdings, an auction of his artworks breaking records by raking in $1.5 billion. Almost all the proceeds were disbursed to charity.

O’Keeffe’s ranch and studio north of Santa Fe were the two properties where she spent the majority of her artistic life, properties that are now national historic sites. See more here.
