Through Georgia's Eyes
“Georgia expresses feelings in her own way. Words work. But for her, the color blue says it better. Or red. Or a seashell.” – Through Georgia’s Eyes
Georgia O'Keeffe saw the world differently from most people. This book explores her life through her time in art school, learning to express herself through her medium and her love of vast space that inspired her and led her to the desert. Lyrical and vivid, Through Georgia’s Eyes is a portrait of an exceptional artist, a woman whose eyes were open to the wideness and wonder of the world.
