Description

This ground-breaking volume, the first to consider Georgia O'Keeffe's works on paper, explores the media of watercolour, charcoal, pencil and pastel. O'Keeffe, an artist of immense stature in twentieth-century art, is known primarily as a painter. However, her earliest mature works, which led to her first New York exhibitions and initial acclaim, were works on paper as well, and resumed her intense commitment to drawing and watercolour in the 1960s and 1970s. The works on paper can be viewed in the larger context of O'Keeffe's career as an artist. They move from stylised, flat patterning of the early charcoals to the rhapsodic organic forms and fresh uses of colour in the watercolours to the tighter, more focused compositions of the later pastels, charcoals and pencil drawings. Finally, the works on paper of the 1960s and 1970s are characterised by an extreme simplification and almost decorative flatness. Richly illustrated with 31 full-colour plates and 21 duotones, accompanied by an introduction, critical essay and biographical chronology.
