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 to which she returned again and again were the flowers, animal bones and the landscapes around her studios in Lake George, New York, and finally New Mexico, with which she has been ultimately identified.
This comprehensive and illuminating book by a noted scholar on O'Keeffe and her work, surveys the complete oeuvre - drawings, watercolours and paintings from all periods - and explains her life in the context of her artistic output. Now revised with updated bibliography, this edition features colour reproductions of artworks throughout.
