Georgia O'Keeffe's two houses in New Mexico--at Abiquiu and Ghost Ranch--are essential elements in her paintings, but their history has never before been detailed. Quoting liberally from the artist's letters, Barbara Buhler Lynes and Agapita Judy Lopez create a vibrant picture of O'Keeffe (1887-1986) and her homes, which have long intrigued the public. An essay by architect Beverly Spears describes the distinctive characteristics of adobe construction.
The bountiful illustrations include photographs made especially for this book showing the houses as they are today, photographs of O'Keeffe at home by major photographers, and her paintings of the houses and the landscapes surrounding them.
