About this title

Synopsis:

The definitive book on Georgia O'Keeffe's work--selected, designed, and supervised by the artist herself, with her own text. Includes 108 magnificent full-color plates, some never reproduced elsewhere or publicly shown. Covers the entire range of O'Keeffe's career, from her intense, personal abstractions to her unique depictions of nature--flowers, bones, rocks, and landscapes.

About the Author:

Georgia O'Keeffe was born in 1887, the second of seven children, and grew up on a farm in Wisconsin. By the time she graduated from high school she was determined to become an artist, spending the next few years studying art at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Students League of New York, and later teaching art in Texas, Virginia and South Carolina. In 1916, Alfred Stieglitz exhibited 10 of her charcoal abstractions at his famous avant-garde gallery, 291, closing the gallery the next year with a solo exhibition of her works. From 1918 on they lived and worked together in New York and Lake George. Three years after Stieglitz's death in 1946, O'Keefe moved to New Mexico, whose stunning vistas and stark landscape configurations had inspired her work since 1929. It was here that she painted her most famous pictures, working in oils until her eyes failed her in the 1970s. She continued working in pencil and watercolor until 1982 and produced objects in clay until 1984, two years before she died at age 98.
