I listened to an audiobook version of Portrait of an Artist: A Biography of Georgia O'Keefe by Laurie Lisle. At the time I chose it, it had only 267 reviews. It was quite interesting reading about a strong personality that I knew little about prior to the book. Not the greatest biography, but an interesting artist.
