Georgia O'Keeffe : Living Modern
'an outstanding addition to the body of knowledge pertaining to O'Keeffe, presenting her in an entirely new and fresh dimension: her realm of fashion and lifestyle' - New York Journal of Books
A handsome book - the exhibition catalogue for a show at Brooklyn Museum and Peabody Essex Museum - exploring the lifestyle of the artist, Georgia O'Keeffe
Richly illustrated with images of her art and views of the two homes she designed and furnished in New Mexico, the book also includes never before published photographs of O'Keeffe's clothes.
This fresh and carefully researched study brings O'Keeffe's style to life, illuminating how this beloved American artist purposefully proclaimed her modernity in the way she dressed and posed for photographers, from Alfred Stieglitz to Bruce Weber.
This book is the first to bring together photographs, clothes, and art to explore O'Keeffe's unified modernist aesthetic.
Winner of the 2018 Dedalus Foundation Exhibition Catalogue Award.

'Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern is an outstanding addition to the body of knowledge pertaining to O'Keeffe, presenting her in an entirely new and fresh dimension: her realm of fashion and lifestyle.' - New York Journal of Books
'Living Modern has been organized by the influential historian of early American modernism, Wanda M. Corn, whose depth of research is reflected in an exceptional catalog.' - The New York Times
'[Corn's] handsomely designed book, whose subtitle "Living Modern" is readable in several important ways, presents much heretofore unknown or under-analyzed detail about how O'Keeffe chose to present herself, and how, in tandem, she constructed her immediate environments during different periods of an unusually lengthy career' - Women's Art Journal
'This is an altogether innovative approach to O'Keeffe's life and her art and a model for other studies about how artists present themselves and their work' -College Art Association Reviews
