Among the great artists of the 20th-century, Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) stands out as one of the most compelling. For nearly a century, she created innovative impressionist artwork that challenged perceptions and kept evolving throughout her life. One of the first female painters to achieve worldwide acclaim from critics and the public alike, her still lifes and cityscapes filled her canvases with great energy not seen before in the art world. Her representations of the beauty of the American landscape and her magnified flower paintings that featured in One Hundred Flowers are especially beloved.From Publishers Weekly:
Flower paintings comprise more than one-fourth of O'Keeffe's total output. Callaway spent years tracking down these huge, colorful pictures, many of them in private collections; over half of the 100 oils, watercolors, pastel and charcoal sketches reproduced here have never before been published. O'Keeffe's best flower pictures are masterpieces of organic form, metaphors of the unfolding of the inner self. Some of the paintings are brash in their erotic associations, outrageous color contrasts and overblown size; a few even suggest Pop Art. Other pictures employ garish color combinations, still others look clumsy, or static and unrealized. But on the whole, this volume is a glorious discovery. Its publication marks the centennial of O'Keeffe's birth and ties in with a retrospective exhibition that tours nationally.
