This an abstract from the book. (...) "When Georgia O'Keeffe was born, Alfred Stieglitz was already twenty-three years old and achieving acclaim as an extraordinarily innovative photographer. Thus, to draw together these two lives is like combining two melodies within a single score in which neither is dominant. The young woman and the older man inspired each other with impassioned enthusiasm. They drew one another into a creative euphoria that has given us paintings and photographs whose contemporary relevance and captivating power have not faded, even decades after they were produced. Georgia O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz created works of art that pandered neither to public taste nor to passing fads. Their pictures illustrate only their profoundly personal dialogues with the world". ( )
