Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) was one of the foundational figuresof American modernism.

A seminal woman artist, she rose toprominence in the early twentieth century at the heart of theNew York avant-garde circle that centred around Alfred Stieglitz,who would become O'Keeffe's husband.

Many contemporarytexts, as well as those written since, focus on their personal andprofessional relationship, and have re-hashed familiar clichesabout O'Keeffe's work, particularly her best-known paintings offlowers.

As this new book reveals, however, she was a complex andmulti-faceted artist whose singular vision included landscapes,nature studies, still lifes and anthropological paintings, and whoconstantly experimented at the boundary between figuration andabstraction.Accompanying a major touring exhibition, this book brilliantlyreassesses O'Keeffe's place in the canon of twentieth-century art.It features essays from a new generation of scholars, focusingon themes including O'Keeffe's place within the early modernavant-garde; the construction of identity and artistic persona;the influence of the cultures and landscapes of the places inwhich she worked; and the relationship between painting andphotography, both within O'Keeffe's work and as part of her widernexus of friends and fellow-artists, from Stieglitz to Paul Strand andAnsel Adams. The book will also feature reviews from the time ofO'Keeffe's early exhibitions to give a contemporary insight into theirreception.Lavishly illustrated with many rarely reproduced works and a fullillustrated chronology, this is the definitive book on one of the mostsignificant and popular artists of modern times.
