About this Item

Folio. 130, [6]pp. Original illustrated dust-jacket over tan cloth, with silver lettering on spine. Color frontispiece. "O'Keeffe's New York City is a living organism, a breathing giant. The artist's radiant skyscrapers, streetlamp-lit nocturnes and river views celebrate a city capable of transcending crime and grime. Her Gotham period (1916-1932) began with Kandinsky-like abstractions and moved on to quasi-erotic images, cosmic eggs, semi-abstract natural forms, and barns and birches of upstate Lake George. With 91 color plates, this magnificent, oversize album completes a three-volume series begun with "One Hundred Flowers" and "In the West." In his thoughtful essay, Dijkstra ("Idols of Perversity") argues that O'Keeffe was no mystic but a humanistic realist who expressed the beauty of sensory experience. He also charts her break with husband-photographer Alfred Stieglitz's idealized concept of the feminine. Bry is the author of two monographs on Stieglitz; Callaway, director of Callaway Editions, is a specialist on O'Keeffe and Stieglitz" (Reed Business Information, Inc.). Some rubbing and creasing along margin of dust-jacket. Slight age-toning along paper margin. DJ in overall good-, binding in very good, interior in good+ to very good condition.
