Georgia O'Keeffe published by Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza
A visual feast of flowers, abstractions, cityscapes and landscapes from American modernisms most iconic painter Offering a complete survey of Georgia OKeeffes illustrious career, this magnificent new book ranges from the works produced between 1910 and 1920 that made her a pioneer of abstraction to her celebrated flower paintings and views of New York, which led to her recognition as one of the key figures in modern American art, and culminating with her paintings of New Mexico.
The selection of color plates is accompanied by quotes from OKeeffe on her art and additional photographic material pertaining to the paintings. The sense of reverence for the world and its forms emerges vividly through OKeeffe's words. "The unexplainable thing in nature that makes me feel the world is big far beyond my understanding to understand maybe by trying to put it into form", she writes. "To find the feeling of infinity on the horizon line or just over the next hill."
