Georgia O'Keeffe (World of Art) (Paperback)
A revised edition of this classic survey that presents a thorough overview of Georgia O’Keeffe’s life and work.
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 she returned to again and again were the flowers, animal bones, and landscapes around her studios in Lake George, New York, and New Mexico, to which her legacy is tied.
This comprehensive and illuminating book by noted O’Keeffe scholar Lisa Mintz Messinger surveys her complete oeuvre—drawings, watercolors, and paintings from all periods—and explains her life in the context of her artistic output. Now revised with an updated bibliography, Georgia O’Keeffe features color reproductions of artworks throughout.
