Georgia O'Keeffe Museum

( 1 )

Overview

Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986), a pioneer of modernism, was unlike most of her contemporaries in that all her training and much of her subject matter were purely American. Still vigorously productive in her 90s, O'Keeffe always responded to the new in her own unique fashion. In this volume, 86 works from every period of her life, many never before published, are reproduced in large scale and in full color. Several are shown in lavish gatefolds.

Overview

Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986), a pioneer of modernism, was unlike most of her contemporaries in that all her training and much of her subject matter were purely American. Still vigorously productive in her 90s, O'Keeffe always responded to the new in her own unique fashion. In this volume, 86 works from every period of her life, many never before published, are reproduced in large scale and in full color. Several are shown in lavish gatefolds. More than a dozen photographs of the artist, including a number taken by Alfred Stieglitz, document the various stages of her life. A bibliography and full index add to the scholarly value of this handsome volume.

The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum is America's first museum dedicated to the work of a woman artist of international stature. This inaugural volume documents the initial collection in full color, and adds considerable new insight into O'Keeffe's significance in American and world art.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Opened in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1997, The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum houses the first collection of works devoted to an American woman artist. Exceptional color reproductions of 86 of the artist's works, several of which are double-spread gatefolds, distinguish this volume, which features essays by four art historians on O'Keeffe's significance to the art world. Included is a special photography section with pictures of O'Keeffe, some taken by her husband, photographer Alfred Stieglitz, at different times in her long life.

    Beautiful Print Quality and Wonderful Insights For Serious Art Lovers

    A problem often presented in art books is the print quality. O'Keeffe's works are known for its fluidity, lyricism, sensuality, and the expressive use of colors. A lot of times reproductions cannot deliver the original intensity, but this one has absolutely beautiful prints that recapture O'Keeffe's works. Above and beyond the visual, the writing in this book is also superb. It annotates without undermining the readers. I give this book a two-thumbs up!!
