    Georgia O’ Keeffe, The Black Iris ,1926
    Also known as Black Iris III, this is another of Keeffe’s flower paintings, though linked with a lot of controversies. Linda Nochlin, an art historian, interpreted this painting to signify the female genitalia metaphorically. However, Keeffe rejected such claims saying that such meanings were derived by those looking at it though she had not given such interpretations as such.
