Georgia O'Keeffe lovers will want to add this book in their collection. What a wonderful way to illustrate the WEST from desert sands to mountains and valleys.

In chronological order, the O'Keeffe paintings that were inspired by the landscape of New Mexico are reproduced in this oversize volume, a companion to Georgia O'Keefe: 100 Flowers , done by the same publisher last year. One always seems driven to oxymoron in describing these paintings: an intellectual lushness of hollows and spaces, controlled forms and explosive color. The recurrent images of hill and stone, bones and flowers, and trees and sky build to an incantatory power here, providing not only an art historical record but an evocation of place akin to Constable's England or Canaletto's Venice. A brief essay by long-time O'Keeffe associate Bry and notes on each of the plates complete the book. For any library that takes collection development seriously in art, women's studies, or the Southwest. --GraceAnne A. DeCandido, "Library Journal"
