Wideness & Wonder: THe Life and Art of Georgia O'Keeffe by Susan Goldman Rubin

                                           Reviewed by Miss Dewey at Orenda

Five paw prints.  There was a time (a long time ago) when people loved art, but women didn't create art.  It wasn't that women didn't want to create art, but many people assumed women could NOT create good art.  About 100 years ago there was a young woman who didn't agree.  Georgia O'Keeffe wanted to be a great artist and she recognized she would have to travel to different locations across the country (including Lake George, NY) to learn as much as she could to be an artist.  Not only was Georgia successful at becoming an artist, but she became one of the greatest artists of her generation.  This was such a good book.  I already knew about Georgia O'Keeffe, her life, and her artwork, but the book was still a page-turner.  I couldn't put the book down.  I had to keep reading and reading until I had read the whole book.  I now want to read more books by this author to learn about more important people.  If you want to learn more about Georgia O'Keeffe visit,  If you want to read other books by this author visit,
