The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum is America's first art museum dedicated to the work of a woman artist of international stature. This inaugral volume documents the initial collection in full colour, and adds insight into O'Keeffe's significance in American and world art. Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) was both a premier modernist and an inspiring woman. Works from all periods of her career - many never before reproduced - are included among the 86 colour plates, while black-and-white photographs document her extraordinary life. Issues such as O'Keeffe's originality, the relationship between her life and her art, and the influence of American literary and artistic traditions on her work, are discussed in the essays by well-known art historians.

Georgia O'Keeffe's unconventional paintings of mountains, bones, and flowers--often on a giant scale--and her clear, simple forms and colors made her an early pioneer of a new American modernism. The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum opened in summer 1997 in Santa Fe, presenting works from all periods of the artist's long career. Providing a remarkable virtual tour through the museum, this beautiful clothbound volume with French folded jacket features essays by leading art writers such as Barbara Rose and Mark Stevens, and a new, thorough chronology by Charles Eldredge. Included in the 86 full-color images and 4 lavish gatefolds are many works that have never been reproduced before, which are complemented throughout by black-and-white photographs documenting the extraordinary life of this courageous, inventive artist (1887-1986). For O'Keeffe fans unable to travel to Santa Fe for a personal pilgrimage, this book is the next best thing.
