From her appearance as a provocative young artist in Alfred Stieglitz’s photographs to her depiction as a grande dame of the art world in silkscreens by Andy Warhol, Georgia O’Keeffe captivated the media with her image of a woman as bold as her art. This beautifully illustrated book tells the stories behind the portraits of one of the 20th century’s foremost American painters.
O’Keeffe’s professional and personal relationships with the leading photographers of her time come to light, as does her ability to shape public perceptions of her career. Stieglitz first created photographs of his protégée posing in front of her abstract artworks as a manifestation of a sexually liberated woman. O’Keeffe later redefined her image, sometimes working with photographers at her homes in New Mexico, where she emerged as a rugged individualist among the animal bones and gnarled trees that she often painted.
This publication brings together for the first time photographs by Stieglitz, Newman, Loengard, Webb, and othersmany of which probe fascinating tensions between abstractionism and realism in O’Keeffe’s art. In addition, a selection of O’Keeffe’s works chronicles the span of her long career.
