A richly illustrated book exploring Georgia O'Keeffe's experiments in figurative and abstract art - the companion book to an exhibition at the Tate.
Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) was one of the founding figures of American modernism. She rose to prominence as a painter in the early twentieth century at the heart of the New York avant-garde circle that centred around Alfred Stieglitz, who would become her husband.
This companion book to an exhibition at Tate Modern, Kunstforum Vienna and AGO, Toronto reassesses O'Keeffe's place in the canon of twentieth-century art. Featuring essays from a new generation of scholars, the book reveals O'Keeffe as a multi-faceted artist who constantly experimented at the boundary between figuration and abstraction.
Richly illustrated and including rarely reproduced works and an illustrated chronology, this exhibition catalogue provides a definitive survey on one of the most popular artists of modern times.
