Fusing naturalism with abstraction, the intimate with the monumental and the corporeal with the cosmic, Georgia O'Keeffe (1887–1986) 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 watercolours 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.

This book features a complete chronological survey of O'Keeffe's life and career, interspersed throughout with one–page "Focus" essays examining specific bodies of work.
