Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
What do Maria Martinez, Georgia O'Keeffe, Laura Gilpin, Dorothea Lange, and Mary-Russell Colton have in common? They were all Western women artists who worked in the early to mid-1900s. Danneberg profiles these artists using imagined voices of the artists, their friends, family, and colleagues. Chapters introduce readers to the individual women and their art, and focus on the time period leading up to their greatest works. Discover the Pueblo Indian traditional art of pottery making through Native American master potter Martinez. Visit with O'Keeffe as she creates vibrant and spirited landscape paintings. Meet Gilpin, the sole female landscape photographer of her time, who introduced Americans and people worldwide to the West through her work. Explore how documentary photographer Lange captured the suffering caused by the Depression and other socio-economic events. Experience the scenery of Arizona as Colton captured it in her oil paintings. Sidebars, often accompanied by pithy titles, help readers understand the chronological, cultural, and geographical contexts in which the artists created their works. Black-and-white photographs of the artists, their works, and significant locations are included. The book's fictional narrative style does not lend itself to research paper writing. For this purpose, students should consult the author's sources, listed in the bibliographies found at the end of the chapters. Overall, this is a well-researched and entertaining book that makes for an accessible entry into the world of art history.

Meet the Author


Julie Danneberg, a third-generation Colorado native, grew up listening to stories about her grandmother, a miner's daughter, and her great-grandmother, an Irish immigrant turned miner's wife. Love of these women and their stories started her lifelong admiration of all courageous women of the West.
