‘Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George’


Before Georgia O’Keeffe fell in love with New Mexico, she had Lake George, N.Y. For more than a decade, she summered at her husband Alfred Stieglitz’s family estate there. It lacked the solitude she preferred, and she complained that it was too “perfect,” but those years were productive for her. Seventy color plates of her works from that period — flowers, fruits, landscapes, trees, and leaves — are featured in “Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George” (Thames & Hudson) by Erin B. Coe, Gwendolyn Owens, and Bruce Robertson. The book was published in conjunction with a traveling exhibit, now on display in Glen Falls, N.Y.
