About this title

From Publishers Weekly:

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.

Shipping Terms:

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
