The Art and Life of Georgia O'Keeffe
"The definitive life of O'Keeffe." —Hilton Kramer, Los Angeles Times
Georgia O'Keefe (1887?-1986) was one of the most successful American artists of the twentieth century: her arresting paintings of enormous, intimately rendered flowers, desert landscapes, and stark white cow skulls are seminal works of modern art. But behind O'Keeffe's bold work and celebrity was a woman misunderstood by even her most ardent admirers. This large, finely balanced biography offers an astonishingly honest portrayal of a life shrouded in myth.
“The most complete biography we are likely to have for some time. . . . Full Bloom does indeed present her in full.”
— Sarah Douglas, Artnet Magazine
