Georgia O'Keeffe: Visions Of The Sublime

Published by International Arts/The Torch Press.
Edited by Joseph Czestochowski. Essays by Eugenia Parry, Robert Rosenblum, James Turrell, Marjorie Balge-Crozier, Charles C. Eldredge, Therese Mulligan, Barbara Novak, Sharyn R. Udall, and John Wilmerding.

Even in her earliest works, Georgia O'Keeffe was a visionary who intuitively created her own definitions of the sublime, enhanced the perception of its visual symbols, and provided new ways to view the surrounding environment and explore one's inner self. Over the past two centuries, the concept of the sublime has been substantially redefined by a small number of artists, writers, and critics, for whom it has become a vital source of spiritual values at times of increased secularism. For O'Keeffe, already imbued with the spiritual and transcendental, the sublime was not a theoretical concept; it was manifest in her everyday worldly experiences. Although most of O'Keeffe's works are landscapes, the sublime, for her, was not necessarily associated with a physical location; hers was a state of mind in which nature and the sublime transcended specific times and places--though every aspect of her surroundings spoke to her. As only few others have, O'Keeffe demonstrated an intuitive association with all that can be considered sublime, and in her remarkable journey with color, line, light, and form, from the abstract to the representational, she pursued a spiritual quest that has dramatically refined the visual qualities of the sublime. Her work spoke directly to 20th-century modern art with an originality and vitality that today retains a relevance not easily equaled.

Georgia O'KeeffeGeorgia O'Keeffe

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Bice Curiger. Essays by Bice Curiger, Carter Ratcliff, Peter J. Schneimann and Robert Storr.

One of the greatest American painters of the twentieth century, Georgia O'Keeffe is beloved by a broad audience that ranges from the most erudite art historian to the twelve-year-old girl next door. Her monumentally sensuous oil paintings of flowers hang in the best museum collections but are known as well via mass-produced posters, greeting cards and calendars; her weathered, elegant, fierce self has long been mythicized through Alfred Stieglitz's classic black-and-white photographs of his wife. This large-format monograph on O'Keeffe renews her place in the modern canon and encourages an intensive encounter with her work. Her radical departures from imitative realism, the style that was prevalent when she began to study art making, eventually led to an idiosyncratic painting style characterized by a state of suspension. Over the course of her lengthy career--she worked up until two years before her death at age 98--she discovered and developed a personal language through which to express her own feelings and ideas, creating bold picture conceptions and spatial designs that hover somewhere between the real and the abstract, the close-up and the monumental, natural representation and artificiality.
