Georgia O'Keeffe (1881-1986) was a major figure in American art for seven decades. Throughout that long and prolific career, she remained true to her unique artistic vision, creating a highly individual style that synthesized the formal language of modern European abstraction and the subjects of traditional American pictorialism. This illuminating new book surveys O'Keeffe's complete oeuvre - drawings, watercolours and paintings from all periods - and explains her life in the context of her artistic output. The accessible text provides in-depth analysis of her most important pictures and highlights the recurring themes and images that unite her large body of work. O'Keeffe's relationships with fellow artists - particularly Alfred Stieglitz - are also explored, and candid extracts from her vast tranche of correspondence are quoted to provide greater understanding of her personality and her thoughts on art. The book, which incorporates current scholarship and benefits from the recent publication of the artist's catalogue raisonne, is accompanied by a full complement of colour plates and comparative black-and-white photographs.

Conceived by four of the most influential art historians of our time, this groundbreaking book has now been updated and expanded to include the most recent developments in contemporary art. The original authors have been joined by David Joselit to provide the most comprehensive history of art in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries ever published.
More than 120 articles are presented in a year-by-year structure, with each focusing on a crucial event—from the creation of a seminal work to the opening of a major exhibition—to tell the myriad stories of art from 1900 to the present. Key turning points and breakthroughs in modernism are explored, as are the antimodernist reactions that proposed alternative visions of art and the world. The book's flexible structure and extensive cross-referencing allow readers to follow the many developments in the art world, from the influence of surrealism to the emergence of minimalism. A four-part introduction outlines the methodologies governing the discipline of art history, and two roundtable discussions examine the questions raised by the past while looking ahead to the futur
