Summary
"Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) was one of the foundational figures of American modernism and a pioneering woman in the arts. Widely celebrated and recognized for her flower paintings and Southwest landscapes, O'Keeffe is revealed in full in this new book. With superb plates of more than 200 works, it ranges from well-known masterpieces to the abstractions, nature studies, and New York City scenes that have captivated new generations of art lovers. It includes essays from prominent art historians, among them Sarah Greenough, who explores the artist's legendary personal and aesthetic partnership with Alfred Stieglitz; Griselda Pollock on O'Keeffe and feminism; and Cody Hartley on O'Keeffe and the American landscape. Accompanying the first major O'Keeffe retrospective exhibition in this century, Georgia O'Keeffe is the definitive volume for our time on one of America's most beloved and influential artists."--Publisher's websiteReader's Digest Endowed Book Fund
