Georgia O'Keeffe is a towering figure of American modernism, her iconic paintings - of flowers, animal bones, the American Southwest - instantly recognizable and revered today. This fascinating novel explores her life in rich, evocative detail, tracing the extraordinary career that was inextricably entangled with her relationship with acclaimed photographer and art dealer Alfred Steiglitz. O'Keeffe was teaching art classes in Texas and struggling to find her own artistic vision when a friend put her sketches into Steiglitz's hands. Stunned by the young woman's groundbreaking work, Steiglitz invited her to New York, where their passionate affair and eventual marriage fueled O'Keeffe's art...even as it threatened the independence required to create it. Georgia is an impressive read, a tightly crafted examination of one artist's fierce commitment to her work and her struggle to protect its integrity. (KG)
