Georgia O'Keeffe's Hawai`i (Softcover) 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.

“Interesting insight into an unexplored chapter in the life of Georgia O’Keeffe”
- June O’Keeffe Sebring, niece of the painter

“Captures the essence of Georgia O’Keeffe’s true spirit and the healing qualities of Hawaiʻi ”
- Abbot Philip Lawrence, Abiquiu, New Mexico
