    About The Work

    Fusing naturalism with abstraction, the intimate with the monumental and the corporeal with the cosmic, Georgia O'Keeffe made the subject of nature wholly her own. One of the most inventive painters of her generation, O’Keeffe’s highly personal version of modernism is a key component of twentieth-century American art.

    From her early charcoal abstracts and radiant West Texas watercolors through to the triumph of her renowned flower paintings and surrealist-inspired portrayals of bones and clouds in New Mexico, O’Keeffe’s art reflects the solace she found in nature, prizing its capacity to amaze and inspire. This book illustrates O’Keeffe’s work within the context of her husband Alfred Stieglitz’s artistic circle, as well as within the broader history of American and European modernism. The result is an insightful account of the art and life of this pioneering female artist.

    Randall Griffin specializes in American art history and is the author of Homer, Eakins, and Anshutz: The Search for American Identity in the Gilded Age (2001) and the award-winning Winslow Homer: An American Vision (2006). Griffin has taught numerous graduate seminars on American modernism and, for the last decade, a summer class on Georgia O'Keeffe in Taos, New Mexico. He is a Professor of Art History at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
