A landmark survey that illuminates through paintings, pastels, and photographs how Georgia O'Keeffe discovered and refined her approach to nature at Lake George

From 1918 until the early 1930s, Georgia O’Keeffe lived for part of the year on Alfred Stieglitz’s family estate at Lake George, New York. O'Keeffe and Stieglitz stayed there from spring until fall, and she reveled in the discovery of new subject matter. She found respite in the bucolic setting, and in her studio, nicknamed “the shanty,” she could concentrate on her work without the distractions of city life and the Stieglitz clan that congregated at the lake in the summer months. The Lake George retreat provided the basic material for her art, while evoking the spirit of place that was essential to O’Keeffe’s modern approach to the natural world.

This book, and the exhibition it accompanies, examines the extraordinary body of work O’Keeffe created there, from magnified botanical compositions of the flowers and vegetables she grew in her garden to a group of remarkable still lifes of the apples and pears that she picked. O’Keeffe became fascinated with the variety of trees that grew there, and they were the subject of at least twenty-five compositions. Architectural subjects emerged as a theme, as did a number of panoramic landscape paintings and bold, color-filled abstractions. During this highly productive period, O’Keeffe created more than two hundred paintings on canvas and paper in addition to sketches and pastels, making the Lake George years among the most prolific and transformative of her seven-decade career.

Review:

“Seventy color plates of [O’Keeffe’s] works from that period―flowers, fruits, landscapes, trees, and leaves―are featured.”
- Boston Sunday Globe

“O’Keeffe’s distillation of forms from that time . . . created a visual language both extremely sensual and intensely private, even though her work was meant for public display.”
- THE Magazine

“This luscious book is a revelation.”
- The Boston Sunday Globe

Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Although OKeeffe is usually associated with the desert landscape of New Mexico, her professional development as an artist largely occurred during the years she summered at Alfred Stieglitz s family estate at Lake George, in the Adirondack mountains of upstate New York. Modern Nature, the first book to examine OKeeffe s time at Lake George in detail, looks behind the public facade OKeeffe created for herself in her later career, revealing a surprisingly different portrait of this widely mythologized artist. More than sixty colour plates reflect the extraordinary body of work created by OKeeffe at Lake George, and are accompanied by rarely seen photographs by Alfred Stieglitz and members of his circle. Published to accompany an exhibition originating at The Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, the book is essential reading for anyone interested in Georgia OKeeffe and the history of American art.
