Georgia O'KeeffeBook - 2016
"Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) was one of the foundational figures of American modernism and a pioneering woman in the arts. widely acclaimed for her abstractinos, flower paintings and Southwest landscapes, this lavish new book celebrates the seven-decade career of this most prominent female artist. Coming one hundred years after her debut in 1916, this book also marks a century of O'Keefe. Illustrating her highly distinctive paintings from well-known masterpieces including flower paintings and skulls, to less well-known abstractions, nature studies and New York City scenes, this illuminating new study suveys O'Keeffe's complete oeuvre and dispels many assumptions that persist about her and her artistic output. New scholarship includes explorations of the artist's personal and aesthetic partnership with Alfred Stieglitz, feminism and her work, and O'Keeffe's relationship with American landscape and identity. "Georgia O'Keeffe" is the definitive volume for our time on one of America's most beloved and influential artists."
