Gifts from Georgia's Garden: How Georgia O'Keeffe Nourished Her Art

Most of us have heard the name Georgia O’Keeffe — she’s one of the most famous women in art history. But did you know that for most of her life, she lived on her own land in New Mexico, grew her own food, bought locally, and even made her own clothing? Georgia’s garden and her art fed and enriched one another, just as her bean plants enriched the soil and her home-grown feasts fed her friends. In spite of the era’s prejudice against female artists, Georgia lived and thrived in her verdant sanctuary well into old age.

Soothing and inspiring, Gifts from Georgia’s Garden illuminates the life and philosophy of a figure every child should know. Author Lisa Robinson and illustrator Hadley Hooper go behind the scenes of Georgia O’Keeffe’s famous flower paintings to her sustainable homestead in New Mexico, where art was everything and everything was art. With backmatter providing more information about O'Keeffe's story, as well as information about sustainable gardening techniques and even a recipe for pecan butterball cookies, this vibrant picture book is a celebration of art, nature, and the joy both can bring to our lives.

Description

"Shifting perspectives and dynamic design accompany interesting details, beautifully described. In one scene, a pea vine crosses the gutter diagonally, while small, sequential insets in mustard and black show O’Keeffe painting, sewing, and collecting bones as her garden grows.... A veritable feast for the eyes and the mind." — Kirkus Reviews
