Description
(Finalist for the 2016 New England Book Award) This dazzling work of historical fiction begins in 1916, as Georgia O'Keeffe, a young, unknown art teacher, travels to New York to meet Alfred Stieglitz, the famed photographer and art dealer who has discovered her work and now exhibits it in his gallery. Their connection is instantaneous; Georgia is drawn into Stieglitz's sophisticated world, becoming his mistress, protégé, and muse, and their attraction deepens into an intense and tempestuous relationship as his photographs of her, both clothed and nude, create a sensation. Yet as her own creative force matures, 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. Also the author of the Massachusetts Book Award winner The Season of Open Water, Dawn Tripp vividly paints O'Keeffe's passionate search for love and artistic freedom.

"Complex and original . . . Georgia conveys O'Keeffe's joys and disappointments, rendering both the woman and the artist with keenness and consideration."—New York Times Book Review

"Sexually charged ... [and] 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."—Denver Post

"American artist Georgia O'Keeffe blazes across the pages in Tripp's tour de force about this indomitable woman, whose life was both supported and stymied by the love of her life, photographer and art promoter Alfred Stieglitz. The author manages to get inside O'Keeffe's mind to such an extent that readers experience her transformation from a somewhat shy Texan art teacher who decided to throw away the rules to create her own art to the accomplished, strong-willed woman who held to her artistic vision; they will feel the passion that infused her work and love life that emboldened her canvases. Especially eye-opening is the way Stieglitz's nude photographs of O'Keeffe not only amazed and scandalized the art world, but shadowed the perception of her paintings and her identity, a consequence that haunted her most of her life until she made New Mexico her permanent home and reinvented herself as a solitary artist of the Western landscape. The relationship between Stieglitz and O'Keeffe, and her metamorphosis from lover to wife to jilted partner, is poignantly drawn. Tripp has hit her stride here, bringing to life one of the most remarkable artists of the 20th century with veracity, heart, and panache."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
