Georgia O’Keeffe’s Hawaiʻi (Hardcover) Product Description:
For three months in 1939, Georgia O’Keeffe visited Hawaiʻi and painted the Islands’ tropical flowers, plunging waterfalls, lava bridges, and blue-green sea. On Maui, O’Keeffe was guided by twelve-year-old Patricia Jennings, and the bond between the Hawaiʻi preteen and the American icon lasted a lifetime.
Georgia O’Keeffe’s Hawaiʻi weaves together Patricia’s story, O’Keeffe’s island adventures, her remarkable Hawaiʻi paintings, and the letters she sent back home. With an introduction by art historian Jennifer Saville and an afterword by art writer James Meeker.
