Review by Choice Review

Lisle has revised and expanded the scope of her 1980 publication to include O'Keeffe's last years and her death. She has done this simply by eliminating unnecessary details from the 1980 existing manuscript and by adding information to the last chapter that culminates in the artist's death. The bibliography and genealogy also reflect minor modifications and some illustrations have been changed. This would have been the ideal opportunity to add to these portrait illustrations a number of reproductions of O'Keeffe's work; although the book's intention is to chronicle Georgia O'Keeffe's life, it is somewhat inappropriate to exclude her art from her life. Despite this minor lacuna, the volume remains the most comprehensive study available documenting Georgia O'Keeffe's personal story.-L. Doumato, National Gallery of Art
