This volume presents a portrait of the friendship between Maria Chabot (1913-2001) and American artist Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) seen through the lens of their personal correspondence to each other. For four summers beginning in 1941, when O'Keeffe was in New Mexico, Chabot lived with the artist at Ghost Ranch, managing her house and guests, and organizing the famed camping-painting trips from which came some of O'Keeffe's most distinguished works of the period. In 1946, Chabot agreed to conceive and oversee the reconstruction of a ruined adobe house in New Mexico that would become O'Keeffe's permanent home in 1949. During the periods when O'Keeffe was in New York where she lived with her husband, famed photographer Alfred Stieglitz, the two women wrote each other with remarkable frequency. Their letters describe their love for northern New Mexico, the hardships of life there during World War II, and their interactions with the diverse cultural groups of the region. The letters also offer insights into the women's very different ways of dealing with the world and their differing perceptions of a complex and sometimes tempestuous friendship.

Georgia O'Keeffe, the most famous woman artist of twentieth-century America, spent the last forty years of her life in quiet isolation in New Mexico, living in an adobe house that she had built on an old property in the village of Abiquiu (pronounced Abbey-cue). Anyone who knows New Mexico, with its fierce light, pungent aroma of sage, and big, open skies, will understand its fascination for O'Keeffe. The landscape is direct and elemental, like her paintings; it is tough and unyielding, like her character. In 1979, some seven years before her death, O'Keeffe permitted Colorado photographer Myron Wood to photograph at Abiquiu and Ghost Ranch. Over the next two-and-a-half years, Wood made hundreds of photographs, of the artist herself, the people closest to her (Juan Hamilton, her manager; gardener Steven Lopez, and others), and most especially of the house, gardens, and surrounding landscape that nourished O'Keeffe so richly. Reproduced here are seventy-nine of Wood's photographs, in subtle tones ranging from stark white to dense black. They do more than merely document the look of the house, they evoke the spirit of the place as O'Keeffe inhabited it. Here are the smooth shapes of the sun-bleached animal bones and river-rounded rocks that the painter loved to collect; here are the hand-rubbed adobe walls of a building that seems to grow out organically from the earth. Matching the photographs in information as well as in the conveyance of the mood and feeling of O'Keeffe's Abiquiu is Christine Taylor Patten's essay. Patten worked for the painter as a nurse companion close to the end of her life, and grew to see the house and the desert through O'Keeffe's failing eyes. In two parts, heressay provides considerable information, but also attempts to evoke the high desert atmosphere as Georgia O'Keeffe herself experienced it. Together, words and pictures paint a rare portrait of the precious domain of a remarkable, sensitive, and demanding woman.

Georgia O'Keeffe, well known for her striking paintings of the Southwest, carried her creativity into the kitchen, where she took great pride in her healthy culinary style. The meals served in her household focused on homegrown and natural foods. They were always tasty, nutritious, modest, and beautifully prepared. "A Painter's Kitchen" is Margaret Wood's recollection of seventy recipes from Georgia O'Keeffe's kitchen. As Miss O'Keeffe's companion for five years, Wood's responsibilities included, among other things, preparing many of the meals. O'Keeffe directed Miss Wood in the preparation of simple, delicious food using many fresh ingredients and insisted that Wood pay scrupulous attention to every step of food production and preparation. Besides containing recipes from Miss O'Keeffe's kitchen, the book describes in charming detail Miss O'Keeffe's outlook on food, philosophy, life, art, and the world, while maintaining respect for the artist's well-known desire for privacy. Margaret Wood left Miss O'Keeffe's employ in 1982. She was a production weaver for Kozikowski Tapestry Weavers and since 1988 has been a speech/language pathologist. "Lavishly sprinkled with black-and-white photographs of the artist as well as full-color food photos, "A Painter's Kitchen" is a feast for the eyes as well as the mind and stomach."-"Mail Order Gourmet" "More than just a cookbook, this text describes O'Keeffe's outlook on life and art in 128 pages."-"Southwest Art" "Here is a way of cooking and eating serene in accumulated wisdom (MissO'Keeffe was in her nineties at the time the author knew her) and rich in undiminished sensual delight."-"Cook Book" Sample Recipe: During the 1960s and 1970s, many prominent magazines featured interviews with Georgia O'Keeffe, along with photographs of both her houses. During supper one evening she recalled the occasion when a female staff member from one of the magazines had come to the Abiquiu house and was straightening everything up so meticulously that it no longer looked like the painter's house. At one point, when the woman was making every curtain pleat perfect, Miss O'Keeffe could not resist saying to her,

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 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. 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.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • In a dazzling work of historical fiction in the vein of Nancy Horan’s Loving Frank, Dawn Tripp brings to life Georgia O’Keeffe, her love affair with photographer Alfred Stieglitz, and her quest to become an independent artist. This is not a love story. If it were, we would have the same story. But he has his, and I have mine. In 1916, Georgia O’Keeffe is a young, unknown art teacher when she travels to New York to meet Stieglitz, the famed photographer and art dealer, who has discovered O’Keeffe’s work and exhibits it in his gallery. Their connection is instantaneous. O’Keeffe is quickly drawn into Stieglitz’s sophisticated world, becoming his mistress, protégé, and muse, as their attraction deepens into an intense and tempestuous relationship and his photographs of her, both clothed and nude, create a sensation. Yet as her own creative force develops, Georgia begins to push back against what critics and others are saying about her and her art. And soon she must make difficult choices to live a life she believes in. A breathtaking work of the imagination, Georgia is the story of a passionate young woman, her search for love and artistic freedom, the sacrifices she will face, and the bold vision that will make her a legend. Praise for Georgia “Complex and original . . . Georgia conveys O’Keeffe’s joys and disappointments, rendering both the woman and the artist with keenness and consideration.”—The New York Times Book Review “As magical and provocative as O’Keeffe’s lush paintings of flowers that upended the art world in the 1920s . . . Tripp inhabits Georgia’s psyche so deeply that the reader can practically feel the paintbrush in hand as she creates her abstract paintings and New Mexico landscapes. . . . Evocative from the first page to the last, Tripp’s Georgia is a romantic yet realistic exploration of the sacrifices one of the foremost artists of the twentieth century made for love.”—USA Today “Sexually charged . . . insightful . . . Dawn Tripp humanizes an artist who is seen in biographies as more icon than woman. Her sensuous novel is as finely rendered as an O’Keeffe painting.”—The Denver Post “A vivid work forged from the actual events of O’Keeffe’s life . . . [Tripp] imbues the novel with a protagonist who forces the reader to consider the breadth of O’Keeffe’s talent, business savvy, courage and wanderlust. . . . [She] is vividly alive as she grapples with success, fame, integrity, love and family.”—Salon “Masterful . . . The book is a lovely portrayal of an iconic artist who is independent and multidimensional. Tripp’s O’Keeffe is a woman hoping to break free of conventional definitions of art, life and gender, as well as a woman of deep passion and love.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel “O’Keeffe blazes across the pages in Tripp’s tour de force about this indomitable woman. . . . Tripp has hit her stride here, bringing to life one of the most remarkable artists of the twentieth century with veracity, heart, and panache.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “I devoured this dazzling novel about an American icon. Dawn Tripp brings Georgia O’Keeffe so fully to life on every page and, with great wisdom, examines the very nature of love, longing, femininity, and art.”—J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times bestselling author of Maine and The Engagements From the Hardcover edition.

Georgia O'Keeffe is one of the great American artists of the twentieth century. Coming of age during the rise of American modernism, O'Keeffe led a life rich in intense relationships – with the great ferment of ideas in modern art, with family, friends and especially noted photographer Alfred Stieglitz, who became her husband. In her work she drew on abstraction, modernism, photography and Asian sources, producing a body of work both powerful and unique. The images she created – the red hills, the magnified flowers, the great crosses and white bones – are irrevocably hers and known throughout the world. She was a natural feminist, and hailed as a heroine by the wave of Feminism of the 1970s. This biography, a New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year, draws on many sources closed to writers during O'Keeffe's lifetime and the author was given the co-operation of the O'Keeffe family and access to the letters between the artist and her circle.
