Discusses the influence of nature and color on the American artist and how she demonstrated these feelings through her paintings.

McMillan Palgrave

A gorgeous, evocative biography of one of America's most beloved artists.

Georgia O'Keeffe saw the world differently from most people. As a child she roamed the prairie with a sketch pad in her hand, struggling to capture on paper what she saw all around her. At art school she learned to speak in paint on canvas.

But Georgia felt confined by city life. She longed for vast expanses of space, and she found it in the red hills and silent deserts of New Mexico.

Lyrical and vivid, this is a portrait of an exceptional artist, a woman whose eyes were open to the wideness and wonder of the world.

Through Georgia's Eyes is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
