Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986) was one of the foundational figures of American modernism and a pioneering woman in the arts.

With superb plates of more than 200 works, it ranges from well-known masterpieces to the abstractions, nature studies, and New York City scenes that have captivated new generations of art lovers. It includes essays from prominent art historians, among them Sarah Greenough, who explores the artist’s legendary personal and aesthetic partnership with Alfred Stieglitz; Griselda Pollock on O’Keeffe and feminism; and Cody Hartley on O’Keeffe and the American landscape.
