Georgia O'Keeffe (Joan Allen) is a young painter in the 1910s, while Alfred Stieglitz (Jeremy Irons) is New York-based photographer and art impresario, who discovers her works. Later, when O'Keeffe discovers that her works are displayed at an art gallery without her permission, she confronts Stieglitz. However, he manages to charm her, and starts their 20-year relationship. Stieglitz, 23 years senior to O'Keeffe, subsequently starts living with her and later divorces his wife to marry her. However, over the years, as O'Keeffe becomes a famous artist, their relationship deteriorates.
Development and scripting
The film was in development for four years at HBO, having been originally pitched and developed by executive producers Maurer, Witlin and Allen, and at one point it was to be produced by HBO, but eventually Lifetime took it up once HBO passed.
The film's screenplay, which was nominated and won the 2009 Writers Guild Award for Best Original Screenplay for Movie or Miniseries, was written by Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Cristofer, most known for Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Shadow Box (1977) and Gia 1998 film.
The film was shot entirely on location in and around Santa Fe, New Mexico. The executive producers worked closely with the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, specifically with curator and leading scholar on O'Keeffe, Barbara Buhler Lynes, to make sure issues of accuracy and content were done with sensitivity and attention to detail. Over seventy original paintings and drawings by O'Keeffe were permitted to be used in the film. Moreover, the filmmakers were given permission to film at O'Keeffe's home in Ghost Ranch, near of Abiquiú, New Mexico, the first time in history any film company was given that privilege. Lead actress Joan Allen also took painting lessons for the film.
