Tee Corinne in Feminist Art Books Bulletin #4, Oct. 2001: “(It) is an ambitious, beautifully illustrated book discussing the paintings and lives of three major twentieth-century American painters: Canadian Emily Carr (1871-1945), U.S.-born Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986), and Mexican Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). Special focus is given to identity and to the way the artists related to the land.”

Artnet.com: ‘(…)In gossip and in biography, there have been assumptions for a long time that O’Keeffe had bisexual tendencies, assumptions largely based on her friendship with [Marie] Chabot.(…)
This valuable book documents an important decade of O’Keeffe’s life, the period of transition from wife to widow, from New York to New Mexico. In addition, it chronicles an important if eccentric relationship [between O’Keeffe and Chabot] and provides a lucid and unprecedented view of the rough life O’Keeffe was willing to endure in order to live in Abiquiu. The book includes Chabot’s photographs of O’Keeffe camping, painting and the construction of the house. Many are as candid and unguarded as their letters to one another. (…)’

NB! The fact that an artist is mentioned in Feminine Moments’ bibliography it is of course no guaranty that she will be lesbian, bisexual or queer tomorrow, nor that the authors of the above books are “out and proud” in their writings…
