AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The great American artist Georgia O'Keeffe is physically, emotionally and artistically debilitated by her failing eyesight. Living amidst the Navajo spiritual landscape in her desert home in New Mexico, she becomes prey to the ghosts of her past. Her solitude is broken by Juan, a young potter, whose curious influence on her life remains until her death at 98. It is through this intriguing relationship that the conflicts that lie at the heart of Georgia's life are explored: the sexual tensions that survive her physical deterioration and the fear and frustration of failing artistic powers. (Publisher's blurb, back cover).

Notes

  • Inspired by the later life of the American artist, Georgia O'Keeffe (appears on title page).
