Regular price $28.00On Sale $10.00

A new critical biography of Georgia O'Keeffe, the most famous woman artist of American modernism, this book examines O'Keeffe's work, its evolution, and the conflicts of the artist's inner self and public personality.

Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986), the most famous woman artist of American modernism in the twentieth century and a pioneer in shaping abstract art, created an unprecedented, fiercely independent and intense world, focused as much on the grandeur of the high desert mesas and cliffs as on the smallest flower. Nancy J. Scott's succinct yet comprehensive account of O'Keeffe's long life and prolific body of work, and her presence at the forefront of American abstract art over eight decades, will both inform and fascinate.
