Nonfiction Monday

Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by History with a Twist.

My selection is "Through Georgia's Eyes" by Rachel Rodriguez with illustrations by Julie Paschkis.

Rodriguez traces the influences and development of Georgia O'Keeffe's art from her childhood in Wisconsin to her early exhibitions in New York to New Mexico where she found much of her inspiration. Rather than trying to create an exhaustive study, Rodriguez shares the details she found most expressive of O'Keeffe's life, her work and her influence as an artist.

Paschkis beautifully translates O'Keeffe's artwork through the use of cut-paper collage illustration.
