Inhaltsangabe: 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.
From Publishers Weekly:
Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) projected in her later years a flint-hard toughness, yet the artist's pose as aloof recluse, according to Looney, was a carefully crafted image that concealed her warm personality and quick, well-honed sense of humor. This ingratiating memoir, decked out with scores of photographs, records Looney's friendship with the fiercely independent painter beginning in 1962, when he first interviewed her in New Mexico for a magazine piece, through the early 1970s. We meet a woman with complete, steely confidence in herself, a skeptical observer of people, a stalwart liberal who championed Kennedy and hated Nixon, a radiant survivor who braved the tragic, gradual loss of sight that hindered her artistic output from 1971 onward. Retired chief editor of the Rocky Mountain News, Looney includes his relaxed photographs of O'Keeffe, of her house interiors and of the wild, rugged, colorful landscape that she transmuted into the lyric poetry of her paintings.
