Reviews

"A marvellous correspondence personally and culturally evocative."--Jackie Wullschlager, Financial Times
"A love story pitched at the highest romantic level."--New York Times Book Review
"At a time when an ordinary novel might cost $25 or more, you can acquire for just under $40 the intimate correspondence between two of the most important and influential American artists of all time: the great photographer Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) and the arguably even greater painter Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986)."--Michael Dirda, Washington Post
"Talk about a book bargain! At a time when an ordinary novel might cost $25 or more, you can acquire for just under $40 the intimate correspondence between two of the most important and influential American artists of all time: the great photographer Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) and the arguably even greater painter Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986)."--Washington Post
"A definitive, scholarly landmark."--Library Journal
"Greenough . . . provides passages of text to complete the narrative of the couple's relationship and also to provide insights and analysis."--Los Angeles Review of Books
"Senior curator and head of the department of photographs at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., Greenough is a leading Stieglitz scholar. She was told by O'Keeffe in 1981 to make the book 'beautiful' and 'honest.' She has done both."--Hunter Drohojowska-Philp, ARTnews
"Human drama -- and much else -- appears in their letters, but is usefully clarified in the excellent footnotes and interspersed biographical material by editor Sarah Greenough, an authority on the work of Stieglitz and O'Keeffe."--Los Angeles Times
"This volume brings us the missing pieces in the jigsaw puzzle of O'Keeffe's life."--ARTnews
