Georgia O'Keeffe: A Celebration of Music and Dance

by

Georgia O'Keeffe: A Celebration of Music and Dance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Elements of music and dance found in Georgia O'Keeffe's work have never before been explored - until now. Shifting the focus from sexual symbolism and specific thematic imagery found in O'Keeffe's work, Katherine Hoffman brings to light the melodies and rhythms of O'Keeffe's imagery, suggesting new ways in which to understand her visual language. Beginning with O'Keeffe's early works, Hoffman brings her fresh perspective to O'Keeffe's paintings - 37 of which are richly illustrated here in color. She discusses the importance of O'Keeffe's milieu, where musicians and dancers were charting new territories, and where other visual artists were experimenting with musical and dance elements as well. These influences, including Kandinsky, Rodin, Alfred Stieglitz, Isadora Duncan, and Martha Graham, are fully detailed so that the reader may experience the stage upon which O'Keeffe's work appeared. The intersection of the visual arts, music, and dance is a rich one; discovering the presence of these elements in O'Keeffe's work adds new levels of meaning and enjoyment to her work.
