A National Gallery of Art Publication Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986), one of the most innovative and renowned of all American artists, made works on paper throughout her long career. More than 50 of her most stunning watercolors, charcoals, and pastels are presented in this volume, the catalogue of an exhibition that opens in April 2000 at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and travels in July to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe. Images dating from 1915 through 1962 reveal O'Keeffe's unique imagination and technical virtuosity and chart the development of her personal abstract vision. Essays by well-known scholars address the significance of the works on paper to O'Keeffe's art as a whole; examine the importance of her choice of materials in the development of her aesthetic; and place O'Keeffe's works on paper in the context of her American modernist contemporaries. 80 illustrations, 60 in full color, 192 pages, 8 1/4 x 10 3/4"
