Georgia O'Keeffe by Janet Souter( )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and French and held by 2,508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Née en 1887, Georgia O'Keeffe est l'une des grandes figures de l'art moderne américain. A une époque où les femmes étaient avant tout destinées à leur rôle d'épouse et de mère, Georgia O'Keeffe défia les conventions en devenant la compagne, puis la femme du célèbre photographe et figure charismatique pour l'élaboration de l'art moderne américain Alfred Stieglitz. Georgia O'Keeffe se fit surtout connaître grâce à ses descriptions complexes de la nature : la délicatesse d'une feuille d'automne, les subtiles nuances d'un pétale de fleur, ou la symétrie d'une tête animale. Aujourd'hui, Georgia O'Keeffe est associée aux couleurs brillantes et à l'austère beauté du désert du Nouveau Mexique, où elle s'installa définitivement de 1949 jusqu'à sa mort, à l'âge de quatre-vingt-dix-huit ans. L'auteur explore le parcours personnel de Georgia O'Keeffe, celui d'une femme moderne, et son processus de création. Ce livre ne se contente pas d'analyser les expériences qui ont façonné Georgia O'Keeffe, mais aussi son oeuvre laissée en héritage, et met en perspective l'équation très nouvelle de la féminité et de la création

In 1905 Georgia travelled to Chicago to study painting at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Guns of outlaws : weapons of the American bad man by Gerry Souter( )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From colonial-era rifles carried on the "Owlhoot Trail" to John Dillinger's Colt pistols, the history of the American outlaw is told in guns--weapons that became each man's personal signature. Authors Gerry and Janet Souter peer into these criminals' choices of derringers, revolvers, shotguns, rifles, machine guns, and curious hybrids, giving us a glimpse into the minds behind the trigger fingers. With over 200 illustrations, Guns of Outlaws gives a unique look at the lives and the hardware of the most infamous outlaws in American history, and of the law enforcement officers who hunted them. As settlers moved further west, away from authority and soft city life into the Great Plains, the push for survival through the endless prairies and jagged isolating mountain ranges bred ruthless men. Most outlaws were technology freaks who seized upon the latest weapon innovations developed in the industrious East to provide an edge in the life-and-death cosmosof the Wild West. Outlaws tinkered with their guns, creating unique hardware that became their calling cards. Attempts by lawmen to take control sparked a weapons race, pitting gunmen and bandit gangs against home-grown lawmen and vigilante "posses." By the late 1930s and early 1940s, outlaws on horseback had given way to marauding bank robbers. Using fast cars and faster guns, they became folk heroes of the Great Depression, even as the law was hard on their tails"--
