GEORGIA: A Novel of Georgia O'Keeffe

DAWN TRIPP    Book Number: 84209    Product format: Hardback

The American icon is brought fully to life in a novel of the very nature of love, longing, femininity and art. The artist Georgia O'Keeffe had a love affair with photographer Alfred Stieglitz. Her quest to become an independent artist comes vividly to life in this sensual and exquisitely written novel. In 1916, O'Keeffe was a young, unknown art teacher when she travels to New York to meet Stieglitz, the famed photographer and art dealer who had discovered O'Keeffe's work and exhibits it in his gallery. Their connection is instantaneous. O'Keeffe is quickly drawn into Stieglitz's sophisticated world, becoming his mistress, protégé and muse, and their attraction deepens into an intense and tempestuous relationship and his photographs of her, both clothed and nude, create a sensation. Yet as her own creative force develops, O'Keeffe begins to push back against what critics and others are saying about her and her art. Soon she must make difficult choices to live a life she believes in. "I wear a flaming-red cape to my opening. My lilies, cityscapes, my leaves with torn edges, and an abstraction of Alexius in its wild, cloud-tousled sky, which I made in celebration for my brother when the baby was born. Dorothy Norman in there..." Packed with sensuality and detail, a richly imagined novel, 318 pages with desirable roughcut edges in this US first edition. Small remainder mark.
