How Georgia Became O'Keeffe: Lessons on the Art of Living Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most people associate Georgia OKeeffe with New Mexico, painted cow skulls, and her flower paintings. She was revered for so long—born in 1887, died at age ninety-eight in 1986—that we forget how young, restless, passionate, searching, striking, even fearful she once was—a dazzling, mysterious female force in bohemian New York City during its heyday.

 

In this distinctive book, Karen Karbo cracks open the OKeeffe icon in her characteristic style, making one of the greatest women painters in American history vital and relevant for yet another generation. She chronicles OKeeffes early life, her desire to be an artist, and the key moment when art became her form of self-expression. She also explores OKeeffes passionate love affair with master photographer Alfred Stieglitz, who took a series of 500 black-and-white photographs of OKeeffe during the early years of their marriage.

 

This is not a traditional biography, but rather a compelling, contemporary reassessment of the life of OKeeffe with an eye toward understanding what we can learn from her way of being in the world. 

Synopsis:

How Georgia Became OKeeffe delves into the long, extraordinary life of the renowned American painter, exploring a range of universal themes—from how to discover and nurture your individuality to what it means to be in a committed relationship while maintaining your independence, from finding your own style to developing the ability to take risks.

Synopsis:

A fresh, revealing look at the artist who continues to inspire new generations of women.
