I never knew that there was a nexus between these two.  But I discovered the connection while looking at some photos of a home for sale in Ward.  Here is the view from the living room:

Here is another photo taken from the living room:

Note the poster on the wall.  Here is the original:


The title is simply Church Bell, Ward, Colorado, 1917.  And, in checking things out a bit more, I found this article in the Boulder Daily Camera explaining a bit about the marketing of the home for sale.   The linked Camera article also has a nice description of how O'Keeffe happened to pass through Ward.  The original painting is a 14-by-17-inch oil-on-board and is at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, N.M., but is not currently on display.
