Full bloom : the art and life of Georgia O'Keeffe by Hunter Drohojowska-Philp( Book )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 1,767 libraries worldwide
This volume is a biography of American artist Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986). O'Keeffe is known for large-format paintings of enlarged blossoms, presenting them close up as if seen through a magnifying lens, desert landscapes, and stark white cow skulls. The author examines O'Keeffe's life events in an attempt to discover their influence on her artistic works. He documents O'Keeffe's breakdowns, her domination by husband Alfred Stieglitz, and the long affair between Stieglitz and Dorothy Norman. Driven to a nervous breakdown by Stieglitz's affair, O'Keeffe relocated and redefined herself in New Mexico, where she created her unforgettable signature paintings. Through personal material - including interviews with Dorothy Norman, Stieglitz's longtime paramour - this biography offers an insight into O'Keeffe's defining relationships and the effect of her husband's infidelity, and offers a portrayal of a life shrouded in myth

Georgia O'Keeffe : American and modern by Charles C Eldredge( Book )
14 editions published in 1993 in English and Japanese and held by 1,180 libraries worldwide
Georgia O'Keeffe has become a legend in modern western culture. As an artist, she was able to garner and sustain the attention of the public and critics alike for well over six decades. Though O'Keeffe is particularly known for her canvases of large flowers and of bones and skulls, her oeuvre is far more extensive. Georgia O'Keeffe: American and Modern accompanies the first international retrospective of one of the most loved American artists. Charles C. Eldredge explores two qualities of the artist's work - the American and the modern - suggesting that they were the leading impulses for her extraordinary vision. Beginning with a discussion of O'Keeffe as an American artist, Eldredge describes the openly nationalistic billing that the photographer and art impresario Alfred Stieglitz, who later became her husband, gave to her one-woman exhibition in New York in 1923. Even in O'Keeffe's earliest works, her penchant for abstraction is evident. Eldredge also examines the artist's later preoccupation with common subjects such as barns, which reflected her desire to paint "something I know." He highlights these subjects as a mark of her modernism - her ability to borrow from the pedestrian world as a vehicle for transcendence. For the first half of the twentieth century, O'Keeffe was the preeminent woman artist of the United States. Eldredge explores this circumstance as well, discussing the psychoanalytic speculation surrounding the element of sexuality in the artist's drawings and paintings. In particular, her flower paintings grabbed the attention of the critics, who were quick to interpret them with the help of the increasingly popular Freudian theory. Despite the inclination to discuss O'Keeffe's art as feminine self-revelation, critics discovered that it transcended easy categorization. As Eldredge points out, her style and choice of subjects evolved from a variety of influences, not the least of which were the photographic techniques she adopted from Stieglitz. Other influences include the immensity of the American West, a profound commitment to nativism and modernism, and a true respect for American culture. As O'Keeffe's work suggests, her life was infused with a spirit reflecting a new outlook, a new approach that was wholly modern - and distinctly American. Eldredge further illuminates the artist's career with a chronology of her life, which is illustrated with photographs - portraits and snapshots - many of them unpublished, and drawn from O'Keeffe's personal archive and from those of renowned photographers. The chronology creates a historical and biographical context for O'Keeffe's career, emphasizing the maturity and talent of the artist, as well as the scope of her acquaintances and travels. This book, which reproduces more than eighty of O'Keeffe's paintings and drawings, and includes extended discussion of many of them, serves as the catalogue for the exhibition "Georgia O'Keeffe: American and Modern," shown at the Hayward Gallery, London; El Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City; and the Yokohama Museum of Art, Yokohama in 1993 and 1994
O'Keeffe's O'Keeffes : the artist's collection by Barbara Buhler Lynes( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,075 libraries worldwide
"Georgia O'Keeffe was one of America's pre-eminent artists, and the first to experiment with abstraction, though she never abandoned her deep response to and observation of nature. Enormously popular, she became identified and respected as an independent spirit for both her art and her life." "This book explores the significance of O'Keeffe's collection of her own work. Approximately 75 seminal works, dating from about 1910 to the end of the 1960s document the range and quality of the art that O'Keeffe either chose to retain in her estate or consciously distributed in her lifetime as bequests. It provides a unique perspective from which to understand O'Keeffe as artist and collector."--Jacket

"Georgia O'Keeffe is one of the great artists of the twentieth century, and one of the most loved. Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico, holds the largest collection of her work, as well as her archives and her two homes. It also houses the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum Research Center, the only museum-related facility dedicated to the study of American Modernism (1890-present)." "This illustrated volume offers a comprehensive overview of O'Keeffe's paintings, drawings, and sculptures. It also reproduces a number of her own photographs, most of which have not previously been published." "More than 300 plates, all reproduced in full color, also include a generous portfolio of photographs - many of O'Keeffe - by Alfred Stieglitz, her husband and mentor, as well as photographs of the artist by other renowned photographers such as Ansel Adams, Eliot Porter, Philippe Halsman, Yousuf Karsh, and Tod Webb. In addition, there are a number of works by American Modernist painters - George Bellows, Thomas Hart Benton, Oscar Bluemner, Juan Hamilton, Marsden Hartley, Robert Henri, Edward Hopper, John Marin, and John Sloan among them. Published in the tenth year after the founding of the Museum, this book documents the growth of the collection, which has more than quadrupled in that time. A detailed chronology and a selected bibliography round out the volume."--Jacket

Georgia O'Keeffe by Alfred Stieglitz( Book )
12 editions published between 1978 and 1997 in English and held by 964 libraries worldwide
From 1917 through the mid-1930s, Alfred Stieglitz photographed Georgia O'Keeffe, with whom he began a passionate relationship in 1918. The artist O'Keeffe (1887-1986) and the photographer Stieglitz (1864-1946) first met in 1916, when she heard that he was giving her drawings their first public showing, but without her consent. The following year Stieglitz began his portraiture of his future wife, according to his idea that a portrait was not just one photograph, but a series that would portray the many aspects of a person
Georgia O'Keeffe by Lisa Mintz Messinger( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 877 libraries worldwide
"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 landscapes around her studios in Lake George, New York, and finally New Mexico, with which she has become ultimately identified." "This comprehensive and illuminating new 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. The text, which incorporates current scholarship and benefits from the recent publication of the artist's catalogue raisonne, is accompanied by a full complement of colour plates and comparative black-and-white photographs."--Jacket

Two lives : Georgia O'Keeffe & Alfred Stieglitz : a conversation in paintings and photographs by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )
5 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 730 libraries worldwide
"Photography historian Belinda Rathbone, the author of a forthcoming biography of the American photographer Walker Evans, looks at the couple's life together from the perspective of Stieglitz who, at the age of fifty-two, was thoroughly rejuvenated when Georgia entered his life. Art historian Elizabeth Hutton Turner examines the relationship from O'Keeffe's point of view. She portrays how a gifted but inexperienced artist came into Stieglitz's world at the age of twenty-nine and in a short space of time evolved from apprentice to collaborator and finally to a leading artist in her own right. As Associate Curator at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., Dr. Turner organized the traveling exhibition that accompanies this book." "Two Lives reproduces the work of both artists with the stunning quality and fidelity for which Callaway books are known. Together, the reproductions and the three essays form a unique account of two lives and two artists."--Jacket

Georgia O'Keeffe, 1887-1986 : flowers in the desert by Britta Benke( Book )
22 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 572 libraries worldwide
Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986) was a major figure in modern American art for some seven decades. Importantly, her fame was not associated with shifting art styles and trends, but rather with her own unique vision, based on finding essential and abstract forms in nature. O’Keeffe’s primary subjects were landscapes, flowers, and bones, each explored in successive series over several years. Certain works went on for decades, producing 12 or more variations of an original image. Among these, O’Keeffe’s magnified pictures of calla lilies and irises are her most famous. Enlarging the tiniest petals to fill an entire canvas, O’Keeffe created a proto-abstract vocabulary of shapes and lines, earning her the moniker “mother of American modernism.” In 1946, O’Keeffe became the first female artist to be given a solo show at the MoMA in New York
Modernism and the feminine voice : O'Keeffe and the women of the Stieglitz circle by Kathleen A Pyne( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 569 libraries worldwide
"This opulently illustrated book reveals how Alfred Stieglitz's search for a pure, essential "woman in art" led him to several women before his vision found ultimate expression in Georgia O'Keeffe, whom Stieglitz portrayed as the shining, liberated feminine figure of his movement. Modernism and the Feminine Voice explores a group of extraordinary women who developed their voices through an affiliation with the Stieglitz circle - Gertrude Kasebier, Pamela Colman Smith, Anne Brigman, and Katharine Nash Rhoades - and shows how these artists helped define the woman modernist through their lives and their individual photographs and paintings. Profoundly revising Stieglitz's story of the woman modernist as embodied in the person and imagery of Georgia O'Keeffe, this pioneering book demonstrates that O'Keeffe was one voice among several which deserve recognition as the vanguard of American modernism. Kathleen Pyne adds fascinating but overlooked material to the history of modernism in New York with this book, which accompanies a major exhibition of the artists' works. In contrast to previous views of O'Keeffe's self-identity as that of either a forceful, hard-working professional or a strong, erotically charged woman, Pyne posits a new theory, that O'Keeffe had a secret self-identity that was indebted to Stieglitz's notion of the feminine voice as intuitive and childlike yet resistant to his eroticizing."--Publisher's description

Georgia O'Keeffe : a life by Roxana Robinson( Book )
4 editions published between 1989 and 1999 in English and held by 415 libraries worldwide
"Georgia O'Keeffe is arguably the twentieth century's leading woman artist. Coming of age along with American modernism, her life was filled with intense relationships - with family, friends, and especially noted photographer Alfred Stieglitz. Her struggle between the rigorous demands of love and work resulted in extraordinary accomplishments. Her often-eroticized flowers, bones, stones, skulls and pelvises became extremely well known to a broad American public. New York Times Book Review named Roxana Robinson's biography as a Notable Book of 1989"--Jacket
