The present livre d'artiste provides intimate insight on how O'Keeffe (1887-1986) came to view her work with the passage of time. Many of the drawings reproduced were executed between 1916 and 1919 and were exhibited at Alfred Stieglitz's gallery, 291, New York. Her commentary on each drawing includes how she had altered the plates printed five decades later.
