Review: Portrait of an Artist: A Biography of Georgia O'Keeffe

User Review  - Carol Ascher - Goodreads

This is a wonderful biography of Georgia O'Keefe, showing her struggles for autonomy and her efforts to find her own pictoral images, amidst a relationship with an older well-known photographer. The biography has a light touch, but gives O'Keefe the full complexity of her unique character. Read full review
