Review by Choice Reviews

This stunning, informative, beautiful book is definitely an open invitation for reading by scholars and/or anyone loyal to the inventiveness, style, and strength of O'Keeffe's works. Turner records a current traveling exhibition of 80 outstanding works brought together "to examine O'Keeffe and her visual conception of the world of objects" (the show runs through May of 2000). There are three main parts to this catalog: Elizabeth Hutton Turner writes "The Real Meaning of Things," Marjorie P. Balge-Crozier adds "Still Life Redefined," and there is a very fine and up-to-date illustrated chronology by Elsa Mezvinsky Smithgall. There are 62 wonderful color plates and more than 80 black-and-white figures. The works include drawings-- including her "specials"--paintings, and sculpture from all periods of her career. Highest recommendation, for most libraries and private shelves. All levels. Copyright 1999 American Library Association
