Georgia O'Keeffe: One Hundred Flowers

( 5 )

Overview

A flower is relatively small. Everyone has many associations with a flower -- the idea of flowers. You put your hand to touch the flower -- lean forward to smell it -- maybe touch it with your lips almost without thinking -- or give it to someone to please them. Still -- in a way -- nobody sees a flower -- really -- it is so small -- we haven't time -- and to see takes time like to have a friend takes time. If I could paint the flower exactly as I see it no one would see what I see because I would paint it small ...

Overview

A flower is relatively small. Everyone has many associations with a flower -- the idea of flowers. You put your hand to touch the flower -- lean forward to smell it -- maybe touch it with your lips almost without thinking -- or give it to someone to please them. Still -- in a way -- nobody sees a flower -- really -- it is so small -- we haven't time -- and to see takes time like to have a friend takes time. If I could paint the flower exactly as I see it no one would see what I see because I would paint it small like the flower is small. --Georgia O'Keeffe

The bestselling original hardcover edition of One Hundred Flowers was heralded by the critics in 1987 as "a revelation . . . magnificently produced."-- The New York Times. Now, this collection of 100 famous and extravagantly beautiful flowers is available in an unprecedented miniature trade paperback edition. Full-color photographs.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Flower paintings comprise more than one-fourth of O'Keeffe's total output. Callaway spent years tracking down these huge, colorful pictures, many of them in private collections; over half of the 100 oils, watercolors, pastel and charcoal sketches reproduced here have never before been published. O'Keeffe's best flower pictures are masterpieces of organic form, metaphors of the unfolding of the inner self. Some of the paintings are brash in their erotic associations, outrageous color contrasts and overblown size; a few even suggest Pop Art. Other pictures employ garish color combinations, still others look clumsy, or static and unrealized. But on the whole, this volume is a glorious discovery. Its publication marks the centennial of O'Keeffe's birth and ties in with a retrospective exhibition that tours nationally.
From Barnes & Noble
Although she did not consider them her specialty, Georgia O'Keeffe produced flower paintings so unique and compelling that for many people they remain the quintessence of the genre. No delicate Impressionistic pastels for O'Keeffe, whose garden is filled with fabulous, gargantuan blooms steeped in bold, intoxicating color and sweet perfume. Enlarged to Brobdingnagian proportions, these blossoms sing a siren song, inviting us to disappear inside the velvety, deep recesses of countless funnels, bells, and trumpets, or losing us among the whorls and folds of a thousand fragrant petals. Culled from museums and private collections around the world, this gorgeous, oversized book collects 100 of O'Keeffe's astonishing flower canvases, displaying to perfection the sumptuous color, lavish detail, and sheer sensuality that imbue these beautiful and distinctive artworks. And, though they are bound to create an astonishingly beautiful book, dozens of these brilliantly colored plates lend themselves nicely to matting and framing. 13" x 16".

    Lovely book!!!!!

    I absolutely love this book! I bought it for inspiration for art journal ling and I just love it! The book itself is quite big, so I was a little surprised when I received the package. However, her paintings themselves were monumental, so the book was the appropriate size for her works. Great, great, great work. Fabulous.

    Just Beautiful

    The art work was lovely. I gave a copy to a friend and returned to buy more copies. The book is excellent for the coffee table as a conversational piece because the pictures are larger than an average book. The only down fall was that I had to search for the title of the work at the back of the book. The is very little narrative or commentary. Otherwise, this was a great find.
