Abstract :
Reappraisal of O'Keeffe's work shows that her art was decisively shaped by the America in which she grew up. The author looks at the cultural environment of her childhood and illuminates the details of her early education in art. He shows that O'Keeffe's mature style found its origin in such apparently unlikely sources as Edgar Allan Poe's speculations about the androgynous nature of the soul before industrialism, and in what Dijkstra calls the 'transcendental materialism' of the tonalist movement in turn-of-the-century American art. Dijkstra also explores O'Keeffe's important identification with the feminist aims and artistic concerns of the radical periodical The masses. And he shows that even the daring new styles of illustration featured there, and in other magazines of the period, significantly influenced her development of a personal style. ;
