Booklist - 06/01/2011 Rubin, whose previous books include biographies of artists Hopper, Lichtenstein, Thiebaud, and Warhol, here looks at the life and work of Georgia O’Keeffe. Nicely illustrated with family photos, portrait photos by Stieglitz, and many reproductions of the artist’s drawings and paintings, the book builds a convincing portrayal of O’Keeffe from her student days to her ultimate recognition as an important American artist. The book’s design is striking. Many combinations of ink and background color (navy on plum, blue on goldenrod, white on orange, dark pink on pale pink, navy on green) are used. The effect is striking, and the text is always quite legible, though some pages are easier on the eyes than others. The many illustrations appear only on white pages, and the quality of reproduction is very fine. Back matter includes a bibliography and detailed image notes but, surprisingly, no source notes for the many quotes. A fine introduction. - Copyright 2011 Booklist.
