This collection of letters (1915-1917, 1950-1968) is a fascinating revelation of Georgia O'Keeffe before she became Stieglitz's protegee, a successful artist, and (finally) a legend. Anita Pollitzer was the door through which O'Keeffe passed to all her later selves: Anita introduced her drawings to Stieglitz, opening the "ambitious, hungry, and impatient" O'Keeffe to everything else that happened to her.

"I want everything and I want it now," O'Keeffe wrote to her friend. Among the things she wa

A collection of letters between Georgia O'Keeffe and Anita Pollitzer. On the whole, an interesting glimpse into the formative years of Georgia O'Keeffe's life. As the correspondence between the two dwindles, it looses some of its punch. It also could benefit from more contextual information so that you get a fuller picture of what's happening surrounding the letters.

Anita and Georgia met in art school in New York and kept up a correspondence for many years, but especially in the early days of th

Let me put it this way, I like anything and everything I can read that will increase my appreciation of Georgia O'Keeffe. While the letters themselves are not necessarily riveting each and every time, they nonetheless help give some idea of how Georgia lived and thought. Anita's letters certainly describe her life and style. If you like to time-travel and imagine yourself in someone else's world, you will enjoy this - even the maddeningly elusive Georgia O'Keeffe who did not exactly bare her sou ...more

ILately, I've been interested in finding out more about Georgia O'Keeffe and thought this book of letters between Georgia and Anita Pollitzer would be a good way to do that. And it is a good way to get a glimpse of personality and what she was like . . . but a whole book of letters was just too much. It got pretty boring actually. The introduction was probably the most interesting part . . . and the last section of letters where she rejects the biography that Anita wrote about her . . . and in f ...more

This set of letters ranges from 1915 to 1968 and it is almost heartbreaking to see the change especially in O'Keeffe over the years as she goes from a enthusiastic open artist willing to try and fail to an icon of American art with all the fame and wealth it brought to her. Pollizter seems almost girlish in her letters and I sort of thing somewhat intimidated by O'Keeffe especially toward the end of the correspondence.
