Despite the vast amount of literature available on Georgia O'Keeffe, it is difficult to find cogent and detailed analyses of the critical reaction to her work. This publication is a welcome and commanding study of the written reaction to O'Keeffe's art between 1916 and 1929, the period when she emerged as one of America's most acclaimed modern artists. By limiting the scope of the study, Lynes is able to investigate adequately the competing forces that formulate the basis of O'Keeffe's artistic reputation, including the powerful and complex role of Alfred Stieglitz. Lynes, an art historian and educator, does an outstanding job of integrating a variety of diverse issues into a readable and authoritative text backed up by excellent reference notes and an extensive bibliography. An appendix offers reprints of 90 reviews of O'Keeffe's work by a range of notable commentators, which will be very valuable to students and scholars. The book is illustrated with 23 rarely seen Stieglitz photographs; small and indistinct, the photographs are the single flaw in an otherwise outstanding publication. A must for academic libraries; it will be especially useful for advanced students and faculty. J. A. Day University of South Dakota
