The New York Times Book Review named this richly detailed and moving biography of the 20th century’s leading woman artist a Notable Book of the Year.

Georgia O’Keeffe is arguably the 20th century’s leading woman artist. Coming of age along with American modernism, her life was rich in intense relationships—with family, friends, and especially noted photographer Alfred Stieglitz. Her struggle between the rigorous demands of love and work resulted in extraordinary accomplishments. Her often-eroticized flowers, bones, stones, skulls, and pelvises became extremely well known to a broad American public. The New York Times Book Review named this richly detailed and moving biography a Notable Book of the Year.

Praise for Georgia O’Keeffe: A Life

This is without question the best book ever written on O’Keeffe and an invaluable reattribution not only for scholars but for the general public. It is accurate, insightful, and beautifully written.”
– Calvin Tomkins, The New Yorker
