Publisher: Little, Brown

First in the new ``Portraits of Women Artists for Children'' series, a brief survey of O'Keeffe's life and work. Turner writes intelligently about the evolution of O'Keeffe's distinctive style and subject matter, emphasizing the difficulties women faced in getting an education in art and in being taken seriously as artists at the turn of the century. Biographical details are more cursory but adequate. Illustrated with representative examples of paintings and well-chosen photos. An attractive introduction. (Biography. 8-12)
