Georgia O'Keeffe at Home
|Author:||Alicia Inez Guzman|
"When I got to New Mexico that was mine. As soon as I saw it that was my country.”
Despite Georgia’s own assertions that a biographic interpretation of her work will yield little insight, it is plain to see that the various places Georgia called home had a massive impact on her artwork.
Beginning with her teaching career in Texas, through her time in New York City and Lake George (in the company of her husband, Alfred Stieglitz) and ending at her two desert ranches in New Mexico, Georgia O’Keeffe at Home explores the influence of the various landscapes and cities Georgia inhabited--as well as the places she traveled to--on her life and artwork.
Fully illustrated, the book features Georgia’s drawings and paintings together with archival imagery of her houses, friends and family from the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico, including photographs by Alfred Stieglitz and other notable contemporaries.
