Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In flight from her hectic New York life with her avidly sociable husband, photographer Alfred Stieglitz, and in pursuit of “quiet and isolation,” O’Keeffe found the perfect refuge in New Mexico. Her passion for the land and sky and her profound attachment to her homes at Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu shape and vitalize all of her best-known paintings, yet the full story of how she acquired and lived and worked in these sanctuaries has never been told before. Lynes (Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Collections, 2007), curator of the Georgia O’Keefe Museum in Santa Fe, and Lopez, director of Abiquiu Historic Properties, thoroughly and thoughtfully chronicle the ways the artist turned her cherished homes and studios into veritable works of art. With information on adobe construction and the Pueblo Revival style, striking black-and-white photographs of the artist in her homes by such famous photographers as Ansel Adams, O’Keeffe’s paintings of Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu, and new color photographs that capture the enduring beauty and serenity of O’Keeffe’s gracefully pristine sanctuaries, this is a gorgeous and enriching addition to the O’Keeffe collection. --Donna Seaman

For anyone who loves Georgia O'Keeffe's work, this book is a must-have. Filled with wonderful photographs of her two New Mexico houses at Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu, ranging in date from 1933 when the Ghost Ranch house was built into the 1970s at Abiquiu; but most of all, pictures of O'Keeffe at home, working, posing, cooking, gardening, taken by Ansel Adams, Yousuf Karsh and others.

The art reproductions are excellent, often full-page affairs, and whenever a painting appears in a photograph, or there is a view or part of her house she painted, there is a color repro on the facing page. Another great thing about the book is that new photographs (2007-2010) were taken to replicate the angles in some of the paintings, specifically one of the Abiquiu courtyard in the snow, and other Abiquiu paintings as well.

The text is kept relatively short--only a couple of real essays, both short, one giving an overview of when, how and why she bought these houses, and one about the care and feeding of adobe; most of the book is given over the the great pictures, and text is mostly one-paragraph explanations or discussions of what we see in the photographs themselves.

This is a real treasure for those of us who love O'Keeffe's work and New Mexico. I have been fortunate enough to tour the Abiquiu house, but wished I could have some photographs of it, which isn't allowed on the tours. I have also seen a lot of Ghost Ranch on multiple visits, but the house is off limits. Now my curiosity is satisfied and I am delighted with both the beautiful photographs and the very informative text.

This book delivers better than Dominos! It is a must for anyone who has had the transformative experience of visiting Georgia O'Keeffe's home in Abiquiu. The interiors are modern, minimal, and timeless. After finishing the book, you'll be inspired to take a look at your own surroundings and start throwing things away. The photos showing the evolution of her homes over time are particularly interesting and should appeal to everyone interested in architecture, art history, photography, and interior design. Throughout it all, the reader will have an appreciation for how far Georgia O'Keeffe was ahead of her time --organic gardening, open design, etc. Not only did she know how to paint, but she knew how to live.

Format: Hardcover
For anyone who loves Georgia O'Keeffe as we do, this book is a necessary tome in your O'Keeffe library. Beautifully written and using fascinating and some never previously published photos, the book is a complete record of O'Keeffe's two remarkable New Mexico homes. I have been to both houses, Ghost Ranch in the early 1980's and then took the Abiquiu home tour a few years ago. The book is the closest thing to actually being in and around the homes. Even the footnotes are thorough, fascinating, and illuminating. The history of both adobe and adobe revival house making is covered along with Maria Chabot's letters and notes about the reconstruction of the Abiquiu house, along with before/after floorplans for both homes. Photos of views from the homes' windows are matched with the paintings the views inspired. I have always felt sad that the Ghost Ranch house is not open to the public, but with this book, a reader feels as if they have been there, both now and throughout time through the photo documentation.

After traveling out to NM last year and touring her house at Abiquiu and touring Ghost Ranch I thoroughly enjoyed getting this inside scoop so to speak on her homes and her life in them. I love that I have images now to come back to again and again since there was no photography allowed at Abiquiu and no one gets to tour the Ghost Ranch house. I am an artist and Georgia O'Keefe is one of my absolute favorites.

I took a tour of O'Keeffe's Abiquiu house. I felt I gained a greater understanding from this book of O'Keeffe and of her house.

The Ghost Ranch house is not available for tours. This book is the best way to experience O'Keeffe in that house.
