GEORGIA: A NOVEL OF GEORGIA O’KEEFFE / Dawn Tripp

Georgia O’Keeffe is one of America’s best loved and well-known artists.  Her husband, Alfred Stieglitz, was initially better known.  He played a sort of Svengali role in her life and art, but as their relationship aged O’Keeffe pushed back against his trying to define her art.  The love affair between the two is well spelled out in this book, but the story is so much more.  Tripp had access to a myriad of diaries, letters, artworks, and photographs to draw on when writing this book.  It seems to me that she used them to the fullest extent. The details of time and place are very convincing, and while the conversations are fabricated, they were also quite convincing to me.  I really think this is one of the better artist based historical fictions that I have read.     Elaine 4/14/2017
