and#160;

Georgia O'Keeffe, a superbly gifted American artist usually associated with New Mexico, spent nearly four years in Texas, most of them in the Panhandle. She taught art in the public schools of Amarillo for two years, 1912-1914, and headed the art department at West Texas Normal College (now West Texas A and M University) in Canyon from the fall of 1916 to early 1918. She then went for a few months to Waring, Texas, northwest of San Antonio.

and#160;There are scores of books on Georgia O'Keeffe.and#160;The books are of various lengths, covering her life, art, and influence on other artists; her time spent in New Mexico; and her relationship with and marriage to Alfred Stieglitz. By comparison, however, there is little on O'Keeffe's years in Texas.

About the Author

Thisand#160;book will be different from previous O'Keeffe studies, providing a short biography of O'Keeffe on the people and events that influenced her Texas years. We are neither artists nor professional art critics, but as historians of the American West who have an interest in Georgia O'Keeffe we think her years in Texas, especially the Texas panhandle, were significant for her subsequent development as a thoroughly modern American artist. Theand#160;book is designed to work as a guide to O'Keeffe's life and work in Texas.
