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.

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!!
