This still life of calla lilies is more than meets the eye. It is a declaration of the artist’s homosexuality, for the phallic calla lily was often associated with homosexuals in the first half of the twentieth century. The red, white and pink flower is a symbol of the artist’s intense desire, and the energy of the painting is a metaphor for passion.
The sexuality found in the paintings of Hartley and Georgia O’Keeffe reflects the new permissiveness that surfaced in the United States during the Roaring Twenties.
