One month and one day late

I wanted to post about Georgia O'Keefe last month on March 6th, the anniversary of her death. Actually, in place of using the word "death" I prefer to think of her in a celebratory way, for she gave us so much, and continues to do so. I have already written about her in a former post, but I just can't help myself. Her creativity and strength moves me in ways I can't describe. I could scan countless prints and photographs taken of her by her husband Alfred Stieglitz, however, I think I will this choose one.

  1. Hello,
    Since over her Georgia O"Keefe is less known or, in my unfortenate case, not known at all, could you please mention a website or a book about her, that will bring to me the beauty of this artist that you describe ?
    I so love to learn about inspiring extraordinary women.
    Have a wonderful day and stay inspired

  6. Found it on a Dutch website (6 books though - I do need help to make the right choice). Sorry for my blunt request, I do apologize!! But thank you for introducing me to her. She'll be on my book-wish-list.

  8. Now I've added a book on my wish list called: Georgia O'Keeffe - A life. (A highly acclaimed biography of Georgia O'Keeffe that emphasizes her ongoing struggle for autonomy).

  10. I heard a fellow fellow student say that there were no women master artist. I could not believe what I was hearing. From that point on all my papers were by women artist. I know that it sounds sexist, but I found that not only did I become a bigger fan of their work, I also began to admire their strength and voice even more than before. Georgia O'Keefe was of course one of those.
