From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8 A reverential, chronological history of a major American painter. Gherman tells O'Keeffe's story, from infancy to old age, simply and with the sorts of interpretation of recorded events and characteristic anecdotes in a way that animates the pages. She addresses the artist's development, a bit about her personal relationships and even more about the evolution of the modern art movement in America and her role as a woman in it. This is the story of a very strong woman, a pioneer in the sense of her singular vision and the courage to be led by it despite the distractions of a fractious art scene. O'Keeffe was, above all else, a colorist and an artist who expressed herself in images much larger than life. Thus, although the small black-and-white reproductions give a bare-bones hint of her method of abstraction (the juxtaposition of a Ranchos Church painting with a photograph of the building is particularly insightful), only the color reproduction on the jacket begins to do justice to the qualities of painting that brought her fame. And even some of the inadequate reproductions are further demeaned by being sucked into the gutter in the binding process. The enthusiasm of the writing demands an equal visual celebration of the art. Kenneth Marantz, Art Education Department, Ohio State Univ . , Columbus
