Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) was one of the most successful American artists of the 20th-century: her arresting paintings of enormous, intimately rendered flowers, desert landscapes and stark white cow skulls are seminal works of modern art. But behind O'Keeffe's bold work and celebrity was a woman misunderstood by even her most ardent admirers. 23 years her senior. The relationship was physically and intellectually passionate, but Atieglitz was a man of the world. Driven to a nervous breakdown by Stieglitz's affair, O'Keefe relocated and redefined herself in New Mexico, where she created her unforgettable signature paintings. Stieglitz's longtime paramour - this biography offers an insight into O'Keefe's defining relationships and the effect of her husband's infidelity, and offers an honest portrayal of a life shrouded in myth.
