An accessible and concise introduction to O’Keeffe’s life and work.
A new addition to Tate’s bestselling Introductions series, this book takes the form of a chronological career biography, accompanied by summaries of major works and key periods.
Georgia O’Keeffe is one of the most significant and intriguing artists of the twentieth century, known internationally for her boldly innovative art. Her distinct paintings of flowers, dramatic cityscapes, glowing landscapes, and images of bones against the stark desert sky are iconic and original contributions to American Modernism – a style of art that departed significantly from the traditions of the past. In a career spanning more than sixty years, she produced more than a thousand artworks.
Taking the form of a chronological career biography, accompanied by summaries of major works and key periods, this concise book includes discussion of O’Keeffe’s upbringing, education and early work; her relationship with photographer Alfred Stieglitz and his cosmopolitan circle; the artist’s cityscapes of New York; her still life work, including flower paintings; and the artist’s late abstractions, the culmination of a lifetime’s immersion in the landscape.
Hannah Johnston is Assistant Curator at Tate Modern.
