O'Keeffe and Me: A Treasured Friendship
University Press of Colorado, 1995 - Biography & Autobiography - 121 pages
Both in words and stunning personal photographs, Ralph Looney's memoir of Georgia O'Keeffe may provide the most close-up view of the famed artist yet available. Looney - newspaper writer, photographer, and editor - developed a warm friendship with O'Keeffe in 1962 that lasted for many years. O'Keeffe emerges as a remarkable woman of enormous will and talent who was as sensitive and loving as she was tough and demanding. The story is told in many interviews and conversations, photographs of the artist, and the rugged land in which she chose to live, as well as letters written to Ralph and Clara Looney. What distinguishes Looney's portrait of O'Keeffe is its simplicity, its eloquence, and the remarkable images of the late artist, which tell a story all their own.
