Appeared in Library Journal on 1999-12-01:
Lynes, curator of the Georgia O'Keefe Museum in Santa Fe, has painstakingly researched all of O'Keefe's known work for this catalogue raisonn‚. The result is an elegant two-volume treasure, housed in a slipcase and containing reproductions of over 2000 works. Arranged in chronological order, each reproduction is accompanied by detailed descriptive and historical information. Lynes provides a wealth of information on previous publications, exhibition history, current location, dating, inscriptions, and the provenance for each work. Although O'Keefe fanciers among the general public may enjoy browsing through the catalogue, the reproductions are too small to make this use of the book very satisfying. As a scholarly work, however, it is an essential acquisition for research and specialized collections in 20th-century art history.--Kathryn Wekselman, Univ. of Cincinnati Lib. (c) Copyright 2010.

This handsome catalogue raisonne, edited by Lynes (director, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum Research Center, Santa Fe), presents 2,000 chronologically arranged works, all strikingly reproduced (and assessed for authenticity, necessary because of a recent controversy about some of O'Keeffe's early watercolors). The project was initiated by the O'Keeffe Foundation, established in 1989, and the National Art Gallery in Washington, DC, became a partner in this enterprise in 1991. O'Keeffe played a critical role in the circle of artists that gathered around Alfred Stieglitz in the early 20th century. Her magnificent landscape paintings, flower studies, abstract art, and other works are greatly admired, yet the full range of her subjects, her working methods, and her stylistic development have never been accurately explored. Though she was aware of all the intellectual and aesthetic currents of the period, her work beginning with her distinctive drawings and watercolors of 1915 to 1917 nevertheless developed in highly personal ways. The catalog includes paintings, drawings, watercolors, and sculpture, many of which have never been reproduced, along with entries that provide all pertinent factual information, and an exhibitions listing and chronology of the artist's life. These volumes demonstrate how deliberately O'Keeffe pursued her unique vision and how one work grew out of another. A must for any serious collection on contemporary art. General readers; undergraduates through professionals. M. Kren; Kansas State University
