One of the most original painters America has ever produced, Georgia O'Keeffe's vivid visual vocabulary--sensuous flowers, bleached bones against red sky and earth--has had a profound and lasting influence on American art in this century.

Here is the first full account of her exceptional life: from her girlhood and early days as a controversial art teacher, to her discovery by the pioneering photographer of the New York avant-garde, Alfred Stieglitz, to her seclusion in the New Mexico desert, where she lived until her death. Here also is the story of a great romance--between the extraordinary painter and her much older mentor, lover, and husband, Alfred Stieglitz
