Born in 1887, Georgia O'Keeffe is one of the great figures in the history of the emancipation of modern art from its American essence. At a time when women were primarily wives and mothers, O'Keefe defied convention when she became first the companion, then the wife, of the famous photographer and father of American modern art, Alfred Stieglitz. Georgia O'Keeffe is known above all for her complex visual descriptions of nature: the delicacy of an autumn leaf, the subtle nuances of a flower petal, or the symmetry of an animal's head. Today, we associate her name with bright colours and the austere beauty of the New Mexico desert, where she lived until her death at the age of 98. This book explores the personal journey of O'Keeffe, her creative process and the legacy she left to the art world.
