From the outset of her career, Georgia O Keeffe credited her introduction to modernism as deriving in part from a reproduction of a pastel by Arthur Dove she saw around 1913. By this time Dove was well established as the foremost modernist artist in America, yet O Keeffe herself would later become a source of renewal for his work. Renowned scholar Debra Bricker Balken here offers the first investigation into the interrelationship between these two great artists. She shows that while Dove s sensual evocations of landscape his abstractions of nature s undulating rhythms and forms offered inspiration for O Keeffe, the influence of O Keeffe s work on Dove was equally significant. After 1930, Dove turned to O Keeffe s early works for renewed aesthetic inspiration, mining, as he put it, her burning watercolors. Beyond examining the impact of these mutual influences, this beautifully illustrated publication situates Dove and O Keeffe within the circle of Alfred Stieglitz, and brings them into a fuller context within the modernist scene of the 1920s and 1930s. What emerges is a fascinating look at the first pivotal moment of modernism in America.
