Georgia O’Keeffe is one of the masters of twentieth-century art. Working at a time when few women were accepted by the art world, O’Keeffe not only stood her ground, she broke new ground. Her giant paintings of flower, revolutionary at the time, and images of the American Southwest have become icons, beloved around the globe. She was the first woman to have a solo show at the renowned Museum of Modern Art in New York, and her relationship with famed photographer Alfred Stieglitz and her life in New Mexico are legendary.
This gorgeous book features personal photos, early drawings, and museum-quality reproductions of some of her most noteworthy paintings. The text by critically acclaimed author Susan Goldman Rubin, who worked with the O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, tells the riveting story of the visionary woman behind the masterpieces–her transformation from farm girl to artist, her inspirations, her struggles, her triumphs, and her stubborn and steadfast dedication to making art her way.
