O’Keeffe’s professional and personal relationships with the leading photographers of her time come to light, as does her ability to shape public perceptions of her career. Stieglitz first created photographs of his protégée posing in front of her abstract artworks as a manifestation of a sexually liberated woman. O’Keeffe later redefined her image, sometimes working with photographers at her homes in New Mexico, where she emerged as a rugged individualist among the animal bones and gnarled trees that she often painted.

This publication brings together for the first time photographs by Stieglitz, Newman, Loengard, Webb, and others—many of which probe fascinating tensions between abstractionism and realism in O’Keeffe’s art. In addition, a selection of O’Keeffe’s works chronicles the span of her long career.
