It has always been difficult to separate Georgia O'Keeffe's art and closely guarded life from the carefully guarded public image and powerful myths that grew around her. This collection of critical essays, memoirs, and poetry, first published in 1992 and now available from UNM Press, offers a unique view of O'Keeffe, not only as an artist but as a cultural icon.

"Searchingly critical yet affectionate . . . a remarkable piece of detective work." -- Publishers Weekly
