This is a beautiful book of sepia colored photographs of Georgia O’Keeffe taken by Alfred Stieglitz, a world famous photographer. O’Keeffe looks other-worldly…misty, sensual and present. Stieglitz, O’Keeffe’s husband, was a cad, in every sense of the word. A dishonorable man…who broke her heart time and time again.
The Georgia O’Keeffe Art Museum in New Mexico is an interesting place. The exhibits change, so you never know what you will be seeing. A movie of O’Keeffe’s life is shown in a tiny theater and it is very informative and well worth watching.
O’Keeffe once said that she wore her hair pulled back because she considered the face to be a work of art and no matter her age, she showed her face proudly and artfully. O’Keeffe’s body of work is a treasure to be savored and enjoyed. She painted what she saw and what she saw was beautiful to her.
