Reviews

"The best book ever written on O'Keeffe. . . . An invaluable resource."--Calvin Tomkins "New Yorker"
"Robinson's detailed, sensitive critique of O'Keeffe's work alternates with an absorbing, intimate narrative of O'Keeffe's personal life (including her notorious relationship with Juan Hamilton, six decades her junior, and the public battle over her estate) to provide a resourceful, imaginatively rendered portrait of a dauntingly difficult subject."--Calvin Tomkins "Publishers Weekly"
"The most comprehensive O'Keeffe biography to date, this essentially feminist reading convincingly builds its case from a wealth of sources . . . to explain less the woman-behind-the-myth than how and why the woman herself became myth-maker."--Calvin Tomkins "Kirkus Reviews"
"A profoundly human treatment of O'Keeffe and all the people who figured prominently in her life."--Calvin Tomkins "Los Angeles Times"
