“I have made this drawing several times—never remembering that I had made it before—and not knowing where the idea came from,” wrote Georgia O’Keeffe in 1916 about her method of working on paper. A variety of her works were produced as series in charcoal, watercolors, pastels, or pencil. Paper offered her room to experiment freely. Through repetition she created a repertoire of motifs and continued developing her formal vocabulary, blurring the boundary between objectivity and abstraction, sheet by sheet. Featuring an outstanding selection of works from over four decades, this volume is the first to take a comprehensive look at O’Keeffe’s works on paper, from the organic abstracts, nudes, and natural cycles of her early creative phase, to the flowers, portraits, and aerial views of the following decades. In their essays, Samantha Friedman and Laura Neufeld show how working with paper influenced this great artist’s oeuvre and also elucidate her extraordinary position in American modernism.

GEORGIA O’KEEFFE (1887–1986) was one of the most prominent American artists of the twentieth century. Raised on a farm in Wisconsin, her pictures began drawing a good deal of attention in the New York of the 1920s. From 1929 onward, the austere landscape of New Mexico became the source of inspiration for her work.
