Overview

Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) was a major figure in American art for seven decades. Throughout that long and prolific career she remained true to her unique artistic vision, creating a highly individual style that synthesized the formal language of modern European abstraction and the themes of traditional American pictorialism. The main subjects to which she returned again and again were the flowers, animal bones and landscapes around her studios in Lake George, New York, and New Mexico, and these became her signature images.

This comprehensive and illuminating new book by a noted scholar on O'Keeffe and her work surveys the complete oeuvre -- drawings, watercolors and paintings from all periods -- and explains her life in the context of her artistic output. The text, which incorporates current scholarship and benefits from the recent publication of the artist's catalogue raisonne, is accompanied by a full complement of color plates and comparative black-and-white photographs.
