9780810909571: Georgia O'Keeffe Museum Collections

Georgia O’Keeffe is one of the great artists of the twentieth century, and one of the best loved. The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico, holds the largest collection of her work, her archives, and her houses at Ghost Ranch and in Abiquiu.

This lavishly illustrated volume presents a magnificent selection of O’Keeffe’s paintings, drawings, and sculptures, all reproduced in faithful color. It also offers a generous portfolio of photographs—some previously unpublished—by O’Keeffe; many by Alfred Stieglitz, her husband and mentor; and others by such renowned photographers as Ansel Adams, Eliot Porter, Philippe Halsman, Yousuf Karsh, and Todd Webb.

In addition, there are a number of works by American Modernist painters who painted in New Mexico—George Bellows, Thomas Hart Benton, and Edward Hopper, among others.

About the Author:

Barbara Buhler Lynes is the leading authority on Georgia O’Keeffe. She is Curator, Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, and The Emily Fisher Landau Director, Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Research Center. She is also the author of the Georgia O’Keeffe catalogue raisonné and of Abrams’ Georgia O’Keeffe Museum: Highlights from the Collection.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. Georgia O'Keeffe's effortless genius is easy to take for granted unless a curator or museum finds a way to make it new again. A dedicated museum in Santa Fe successfully refreshes the artist in this unexpectedly observant catalogue, edited by the museum's curator. Organized by subject—abstractions, still lifes, landscapes—the 336 color reproductions capture well the ecstasy of O'Keeffe's eye. Here is her favorite wooden door, the road to Santa Fe, a canyon. Two lavish gatefolds keep thematic work side by side. The book lets the artist's work and words speak for themselves, as the light text mainly consists of extended captions that incorporate sparky quotes from O'Keeffe's letters and interviews: The red hill is a piece of the bad lands where even the grass is gone.... I think [it] our most beautiful country—you may not have seen it, so you want me always to paint flowers. While the book contains its fair share of O'Keeffe flowers, it gives full credit to her red hill and her unique ability to see movement and light in a rock, a flagpole or even a favorite doorway. Essential for fans, the book also makes for a handsome introduction to the artist's brilliance.
