Georgia O'Keeffe: An American Perspectiveby Lauris Morgan-griffiths
Synopses & Reviews
A lavishly illustrated celebration of the life and works of one of the most successful American artists of the 20th century
In this spectacular giant format book, reproductions of O'Keeffes most important work are accompanied by Lauris Morgan-Griffiths' expert and insightful commentary on all aspects of her life, influences, and paintings. The book begins with O'Keeffe's early life, studies, and inspirations, and continues chronologically exploring the influences and the stories behind some of her most important works—including her famous flower paintings. Known mostly for her large canvases of magnificent flowers, O'Keeffe's work was far broader than that. The themes she painted were rooted in the natural world that she loved so dearly; the subjects she returned to again and again were landscapes, trees, and flowers, as well as objects that she found around her: apples and avocados, a North American Indian doll, or the bones, shells, and stones that she collected in South Carolina, Texas, New York, and New Mexico. Featuring some of the most iconic and significant artworks of the 20th century, this is a book that will appeal to Georgia O'Keeffe enthusiasts and art lovers alike.
