Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 October #1
    *Starred Review* This lively picture-book biography of artist Georgia O'Keeffe begins with her happy childhood on a Wisconsin dairy farm and traces her education as an artist, the evolution of her painting style, and her discovery of the New Mexico landscape that became increasingly inspirational and iconic in her paintings. The text is concise, well organized, and informative. By discussing O'Keeffe's vivid, colorful recollections of scenes from her childhood, an early art teacher who taught her to look closely at her subject before drawing, and a college professor who emphasized the artist's license to interpret what she saw instead of simply reproducing it, Balkan gives weight and meaning to the name of the What the Artist Saw series (2 titles). Attractive full-color illustrations capture the look of different eras as well as the artist's developing style. Small reproductions of O'Keeffe's paintings are appended. Written in cursive, occasional prompts ("Look up at the sky. Try painting the weather") encourage readers to try activities related to the text. A brief, insightful introduction to the artist's life and work. Grades 2-4. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
