Description: University of New Mexico Press, Santa Fe, NM, 2003, 1st Stated Ed. Hardbound. Maria Chabot - Georgia O'Keeffe: Correspondence, 1941-1949. Published by University of New Mexico Press, Santa Fe, NM, 2003. 1st Stated Edition. Hardbound, Paper DJ. Size 4to (up to 12'' tall). Condition: Nr Fine in VG DJ. 542 Pgs. ISBN 0826329934. LCCN 2003010134. Edited by Barbara Buhler Lynes and Ann Paden. Illustrated with color and black & white photos. For four summers beginning in 1941, when O'Keeffe was in New Mexico, Chabot lived with the artist at Ghost Ranch, managing her house and guests, and organizing the famed camping-painting trips from which came some of O'Keeffe's most distinguished works of the period. In 1946, Chabot agreed to conceive and oversee the reconstruction of a ruined adobe house in Abiquiu, NM, that would become O'Keeffe's permanent home in 1949. During the periods when O'Keeffe was in New York where she lived with her husband, famed photographer Alfred Stieglitz, the two women wrote each other with remarkable frequency. Their letters describe their love for northern New Mexico, the hardships of life there during World War II, and their interactions with the diverse cultural groups of the region. The letters also offer insights into the women's very different ways of dealing with the world and their differing perceptions of a complex and sometimes tempestuous friendship.
