Becoming O'Keeffe: The Early Years. Artist Biography, Sarah Whitaker Peters.

Becoming O'Keeffe: The Early Years.

New York: Abbeyville Press, 1991. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine copy in a Near Fine dust jacket with a closed edge tear and a fold to the rear panel. By examining the period from 1915 to 1930, with flashbacks to O'Keeffe's little-known studies in Chicago and New York, Becoming O'Keeffe casts a clear new light on how a fiercely independent art student became the artist Georgia O'Keeffe. The careful scholarship and persuasive arguments of Dr. Peters's text?supported with forceful clarity by her choice and juxtapositions of images?reveal not only unexpected complexity in O'Keeffe's own work but also previously unexplored connections with work by her colleagues, particularly her dealer and husband, Alfred Stieglitz, and the photographers Paul Strand, Charles Sheeler, and Edward Steichen.
