Georgia O'Keeffe : a life by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )
101 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 4,568 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."--BOOK JACKET
Full bloom : the art and life of Georgia O'Keeffe by Hunter Drohojowska-Philp( Book )
3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,856 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 )
7 editions published in 1993 in English and Japanese and held by 1,156 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 )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,087 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."--BOOK 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."--BOOK JACKET

Two lives : Georgia O'Keeffe & Alfred Stieglitz : a conversation in paintings and photographs by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )
3 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 728 libraries worldwide
"In 1918 Alfred Stieglitz, then a world-famous photographer and the champion of modern art in America, asked an art teacher from Texas named Georgia O'Keeffe to come and live for a year in New York. She agreed, and thus began one of the great artistic partnerships in American history." "Two Lives: Georgia O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz explores in pictures and in words the dialogue that inspired and united both artists. Under its influence, each created, in O'Keeffe's own words, a body of "clear and bright and wonderful work." Despite frequent physical separation, this same conversation of paintings and photographs joined them spiritually until the end, when Stieglitz died in 1946." "The art that was made during this creative alliance is captured in a sequence of images that covers its evolution from 1916, when the painter first sent her drawings to 291, Stieglitz's famous gallery, until the early 1930s when O'Keeffe grew tired of New York and turned to New Mexico for fresh inspiration. Arranged in pairs of a Stieglitz photograph and an O'Keeffe painting, many images bring out striking similarities of form, style, and subject matter. Others hint at a deeper level of emotional and poetic complicity. Seventy-four large reproductions lead one towards the unverbalized core of a singular aesthetic and personal adventure." "The purely visual evidence of two lives spent together is accompanied by essays written by three distinguished scholars. Well-known writer and teacher Roger Shattuck, author of The Banquet Years, opens his account of this adventure with a fable that captures the emotional and imaginative bonds that unite two people, Carl and Miranda, alias Alfred and Georgia. In his essay, he goes on to examine the questions of influence and of inspiration by putting both into the larger context of artistic collaboration, which has often been a feature of both art and literature."

Modernism and the feminine voice : O'Keeffe and the women of the Stieglitz circle by Kathleen A Pyne( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 539 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

Modern nature : Georgia O'Keeffe and Lake George by Christian Schlüter( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 293 libraries worldwide
"From 1918 until the early 1930s, Georgia O'Keeffe lived for part of the year on Alfred Stieglitz's family estate at Lake George, New York. O'Keeffe and Stieglitz stayed there from spring until fall, and she reveled in the discovery of new subject matter. She found respite in the bucolic setting, and in her studio, nicknamed "the shanty," she could concentrate on her work without the distractions of city life and the Stieglitz clan that congregated at the lake in the summer months. The Lake George retreat provided the basic material for her art, while evoking the spirit of place that was essential to O'Keeffe's modern approach to the natural world. This book, and the exhibition it accompanies, examines the extraordinary body of work O'Keeffe created there, from magnified botanical compositions of the flowers and vegetables she grew in her garden to a group of remarkable still lifes of the apples and pears that she picked. O'Keeffe became fascinated with the variety of trees that grew there, and they were the subject of at least twenty-five compositions. Architectural subjects emerged as a theme, as did a number of panoramic landscape paintings and bold, color-filled abstractions. During this highly productive period, O'Keeffe created more than two hundred paintings on canvas and paper in addition to sketches and pastels, making the Lake George years among the most prolific and transformative of her seven-decade career"--Publisher's website
