Full bloom : the art and life of Georgia O'Keeffe by Hunter Drohojowska-Philp( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 1,774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Georgia O'Keeffe (1887?-1986) was one of the most successful American artists of the twentieth century: her arresting paintings of enormous, intimately rendered flowers, desert landscapes, and stark white cow skulls are seminal works of modern art. But behind O'Keeffe's bold work and celebrity was a woman misunderstood by even her most ardent admirers. This large, finely balanced biography offers an astonishingly honest portrayal of a life shrouded in myth

Georgia O'Keeffe : American and modern by Charles C Eldredge( Book )

13 editions published in 1993 in English and Japanese and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Georgia O'Keeffe has become a legend in modern western culture. As an artist, she was able to garner and sustain the attention of the public and critics alike for well over six decades. Though O'Keeffe is particularly known for her canvases of large flowers and of bones and skulls, her oeuvre is far more extensive. Georgia O'Keeffe: American and Modern accompanies the first international retrospective of one of the most loved American artists. Charles C. Eldredge explores two qualities of the artist's work - the American and the modern - suggesting that they were the leading impulses for her extraordinary vision. Beginning with a discussion of O'Keeffe as an American artist, Eldredge describes the openly nationalistic billing that the photographer and art impresario Alfred Stieglitz, who later became her husband, gave to her one-woman exhibition in New York in 1923. Even in O'Keeffe's earliest works, her penchant for abstraction is evident. Eldredge also examines the artist's later preoccupation with common subjects such as barns, which reflected her desire to paint "something I know." He highlights these subjects as a mark of her modernism - her ability to borrow from the pedestrian world as a vehicle for transcendence. For the first half of the twentieth century, O'Keeffe was the preeminent woman artist of the United States. Eldredge explores this circumstance as well, discussing the psychoanalytic speculation surrounding the element of sexuality in the artist's drawings and paintings. In particular, her flower paintings grabbed the attention of the critics, who were quick to interpret them with the help of the increasingly popular Freudian theory. Despite the inclination to discuss O'Keeffe's art as feminine self-revelation, critics discovered that it transcended easy categorization. As Eldredge points out, her style and choice of subjects evolved from a variety of influences, not the least of which were the photographic techniques she adopted from Stieglitz. Other influences include the immensity of the American West, a profound commitment to nativism and modernism, and a true respect for American culture. As O'Keeffe's work suggests, her life was infused with a spirit reflecting a new outlook, a new approach that was wholly modern - and distinctly American. Eldredge further illuminates the artist's career with a chronology of her life, which is illustrated with photographs - portraits and snapshots - many of them unpublished, and drawn from O'Keeffe's personal archive and from those of renowned photographers. The chronology creates a historical and biographical context for O'Keeffe's career, emphasizing the maturity and talent of the artist, as well as the scope of her acquaintances and travels. This book, which reproduces more than eighty of O'Keeffe's paintings and drawings, and includes extended discussion of many of them, serves as the catalogue for the exhibition "Georgia O'Keeffe: American and Modern," shown at the Hayward Gallery, London; El Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City; and the Yokohama Museum of Art, Yokohama in 1993 and 1994
O'Keeffe's O'Keeffes : the artist's collection by Barbara Buhler Lynes( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Georgia O'Keeffe was one of America's pre-eminent artists, and the first to experiment with abstraction, though she never abandoned her deep response to and observation of nature. Enormously popular, she became identified and respected as an independent spirit for both her art and her life." "This book explores the significance of O'Keeffe's collection of her own work. Approximately 75 seminal works, dating from about 1910 to the end of the 1960s document the range and quality of the art that O'Keeffe either chose to retain in her estate or consciously distributed in her lifetime as bequests. It provides a unique perspective from which to understand O'Keeffe as artist and collector."--Jacket

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,018 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Georgia O'Keeffe is one of the great artists of the twentieth century, and one of the most loved. Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico, holds the largest collection of her work, as well as her archives and her two homes. It also houses the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum Research Center, the only museum-related facility dedicated to the study of American Modernism (1890-present)." "This illustrated volume offers a comprehensive overview of O'Keeffe's paintings, drawings, and sculptures. It also reproduces a number of her own photographs, most of which have not previously been published." "More than 300 plates, all reproduced in full color, also include a generous portfolio of photographs - many of O'Keeffe - by Alfred Stieglitz, her husband and mentor, as well as photographs of the artist by other renowned photographers such as Ansel Adams, Eliot Porter, Philippe Halsman, Yousuf Karsh, and Tod Webb. In addition, there are a number of works by American Modernist painters - George Bellows, Thomas Hart Benton, Oscar Bluemner, Juan Hamilton, Marsden Hartley, Robert Henri, Edward Hopper, John Marin, and John Sloan among them. Published in the tenth year after the founding of the Museum, this book documents the growth of the collection, which has more than quadrupled in that time. A detailed chronology and a selected bibliography round out the volume."--Jacket

Georgia O'Keeffe by Alfred Stieglitz( Book )

From 1917 through the mid-1930s, Alfred Stieglitz photographed Georgia O'Keeffe, with whom he began a passionate relationship in 1918. The artist O'Keeffe (1887-1986) and the photographer Stieglitz (1864-1946) first met in 1916, when she heard that he was giving her drawings their first public showing, but without her consent. The following year Stieglitz began his portraiture of his future wife, according to his idea that a portrait was not just one photograph, but a series that would portray the many aspects of a person

Two lives : Georgia O'Keeffe & Alfred Stieglitz : a conversation in paintings and photographs by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )

5 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1918 Alfred Stieglitz, then a world-famous photographer and the champion of modern art in America, asked an art teacher from Texas named Georgia O'Keeffe to come and live for a year in New York. She agreed, and thus began one of the great artistic partnerships in American history." "Two Lives: Georgia O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz explores in pictures and in words the dialogue that inspired and united both artists. Under its influence, each created, in O'Keeffe's own words, a body of "clear and bright and wonderful work." Despite frequent physical separation, this same conversation of paintings and photographs joined them spiritually until the end, when Stieglitz died in 1946." "The art that was made during this creative alliance is captured in a sequence of images that covers its evolution from 1916, when the painter first sent her drawings to 291, Stieglitz's famous gallery, until the early 1930s when O'Keeffe grew tired of New York and turned to New Mexico for fresh inspiration. Arranged in pairs of a Stieglitz photograph and an O'Keeffe painting, many images bring out striking similarities of form, style, and subject matter. Others hint at a deeper level of emotional and poetic complicity. Seventy-four large reproductions lead one towards the unverbalized core of a singular aesthetic and personal adventure." "The purely visual evidence of two lives spent together is accompanied by essays written by three distinguished scholars. Well-known writer and teacher Roger Shattuck, author of The Banquet Years, opens his account of this adventure with a fable that captures the emotional and imaginative bonds that unite two people, Carl and Miranda, alias Alfred and Georgia. In his essay, he goes on to examine the questions of influence and of inspiration by putting both into the larger context of artistic collaboration, which has often been a feature of both art and literature."

Modernism and the feminine voice : O'Keeffe and the women of the Stieglitz circle by Kathleen A Pyne( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This opulently illustrated book reveals how Alfred Stieglitz's search for a pure, essential "woman in art" led him to several women before his vision found ultimate expression in Georgia O'Keeffe, whom Stieglitz portrayed as the shining, liberated feminine figure of his movement. Modernism and the Feminine Voice explores a group of extraordinary women who developed their voices through an affiliation with the Stieglitz circle - Gertrude Kasebier, Pamela Colman Smith, Anne Brigman, and Katharine Nash Rhoades - and shows how these artists helped define the woman modernist through their lives and their individual photographs and paintings. Profoundly revising Stieglitz's story of the woman modernist as embodied in the person and imagery of Georgia O'Keeffe, this pioneering book demonstrates that O'Keeffe was one voice among several which deserve recognition as the vanguard of American modernism. Kathleen Pyne adds fascinating but overlooked material to the history of modernism in New York with this book, which accompanies a major exhibition of the artists' works. In contrast to previous views of O'Keeffe's self-identity as that of either a forceful, hard-working professional or a strong, erotically charged woman, Pyne posits a new theory, that O'Keeffe had a secret self-identity that was indebted to Stieglitz's notion of the feminine voice as intuitive and childlike yet resistant to his eroticizing."--Publisher's description

Georgia O'Keeffe : a life by Roxana Robinson( Book )

4 editions published between 1989 and 1999 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Georgia O'Keeffe is arguably the twentieth century's leading woman artist. Coming of age along with American modernism, her life was filled with intense relationships - with family, friends, and especially noted photographer Alfred Stieglitz. Her struggle between the rigorous demands of love and work resulted in extraordinary accomplishments. Her often-eroticized flowers, bones, stones, skulls and pelvises became extremely well known to a broad American public. New York Times Book Review named Roxana Robinson's biography as a Notable Book of 1989"--Jacket

Georgia O'Keeffe, art and letters by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )

15 editions published between 1981 and 1987 in 4 languages and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a catalog accompanying the centennial exhibition of American artist Georgia O'Keeffe's (1887-1986) work at the National Gallery of Art. This work includes color reproductions of the 120 pieces in the exhibition, as well as 125 letters O'Keeffe wrote during her lifetime. This survey includes charcoals and pencil drawings on paper, but most is devoted to her work in color -- water colors and pastels on paper, and oils on canvas. O'Keeffe's letters are grouped according to four periods in her life: 1915-1918, when she was an art teacher in Virginia, South Carolina and Texas; 1919-1929, when she lived with Alfred Stieglitz in New York; 1929-1946, a period of time when she became more attached to the Southwest, and broke with the way of life in New York City and the east coast; and 1947-1981, when, after Stieglitz's death, she moved to and took up residence in New Mexico permanently. Through the personal letters that form the core of the book, O'Keeffe emerges as an even more complex and passionate person than she herself was willing to reveal before her death in 1986
