This biography draws on many sources closed to writers during O'Keeffe's lifetime and has the cooperation of the O'Keeffe family. Her life spanned nearly a century of ferment and change in America and although part of the modernist movement she established her own unique vision. She was deeply influenced by feminist thought, having experience the early suffrage movement before World War I. During the next wave of feminist thought in the seventies, she was hailed as a heroine.

"Chockablock with intriguing detail, some apt insight, and best of all, O'Keeffe's own voice - in her letters and in the words of her family and friends who wouldn't talk to anyone before the artist's death at the age of 98 in 1986. It gives us the first sensible discussion of how photography influenced O'Keeffe's painting -her closeups, wide angles, cropping, distortion of scale, and zooms." --Ms. MagazineAbout the Author:
