Adventures in Art--Georgia O'Keeffe Aug 26, 2007
This book is very colorful with several of O'Keeffe's paintings throughout the book. The writing is informative and interesting. It takes the reader through the timeline of O'Keefe's life. I recommend this book for art and classroom teachers. This series works for grades 1-6.
a delight Mar 21, 2007
I read this while in the store, and rushed home to share it with my 6 year old. It is now one of our favorites, and I'll be buying a copy from this site for my god-daughter. Nice selection of work from across Ms. O'Keefe's career, appropriate selection of photos and life details.
Good quality reproductions, simple, spare layout. Very nicely done.
The author provides a brief narrative about each painting shown, and she pairs the images with photos of the artist, her husband and the landscapes that inspired the work. A glimpse of the O'Keefe magic, this book has provided many moments of quiet joy.
I can't wait to try some of the other books in this series!
