Illumination celebrates the careers of four extraordinary American women artists. Georgia O'Keeffe (1887 - 1986) and Agnes Pelton (1881 - 1961) created striking, brilliantly coloured images using lush, organic forms; by contrast, Agnes Martin (1912 - 2004) and Florence Miller Pierce (1918 - 2007) produced signature geometric works of sublime simplicity. This revelatory book is the first publication to bring together the work of these remarkable artists. Illustrated with 100 dazzling reproductions, it focuses on the women's parallel but distinct evocations of landscape and memory, and provides a unique opportunity to appreciate the fascinating ways in which each created visions inspired by nature and a desire to capture the transcendent beauty and spirituality of life.
