Overview

"This book will significantly contribute to our understanding of this phase of O'Keeffe's life and accomplishments. Lynes' essay, in particular, opens up a new aspect of the artist's work. She revisits the landscapes that inspired much of O'Keeffe's artistry, comparing each carefully with its corresponding painted rendition.
