Ms.
Tells with scholarly aplomb the tale of a fiercely independent artist who stuck by her gifts through thick and thin. Drohojowska-Philp . . . allows facts to speak for themselves. The result is a moving, insightful object-lesson.— Carey Lovelace
Artnet Magazine
The most complete biography we are likely to have for some time. . . . Full Bloom does indeed present her in full.— Sarah Douglas

    More than you ever wanted to know about Georgia O'Keeffe

    Hunter Drohojowska-Philp is a sound writer, one who obviously does her research inexhaustibly, and with a background in art criticism she also speaks with authority and an informed eye. But she does go on....For those who want to know more about the idiosyncrasies of this American idol then this is the resource of choice. We learn more about the frustrations, self doubt, love affairs, and general personality quirks than in all the other biographies combined. We also learn about each painting in depth which I suppose is like a verbal catalogue raissonne and for that we should be thankful.It is just that with all great artists not everything they make is of show quality and it is this inclusion of all of the odds and major ends of O'Keeffe's work that borders on tiresome. It is with a good degree of relief that the last page of this nearly 500-page opus is reached.Hunter Drohojowska-Philp obviously holds Georgia O'Keeffe in a realm close to Valhalla and that is all well and good. She writes with vigor and determination and certainly informs us of the 'full bloom' of her title. In the end this is a valuable volume for the archives, but not a book to recommend for the casual reader who has already grown visually fatigued with the Santa Fe posters of poppies, ox skulls, and datura flowers.
