Phaidon Focus: Georgia O' Keefe


The Phaidon Focus series presents engaging, up–to–date introductions to art’s modern masters. Compact, affordable, and beautifully produced, the books in this growing series are written by top experts in their field. Each features a complete chronological survey of an artist’s life and career, interspersed throughout with one–page "Focus" essays examining specific bodies of work.

In Georgia O’Keeffe, professor and award–winning author Randall Griffin offers a fresh and insightful account of one of the twentieth century’s most iconic artists. O’Keeffe fused nature with abstraction, the intimate with the monumental, and the corporeal with the cosmic to create a highly personal version of modernism. Her work remains a key component of American art and her influence as a pioneering female artist cannot be understated.
