Georgia O’Keeffe’s two houses in New Mexico:; at Abiquiu and Ghost Ranch are essential elements in her paintings, but their history has never before been detailed. Quoting liberally from the artist’s letters, Barbara Buhler Lynes and Agapita Judy Lopez create a vibrant picture of O’Keeffe (1887–1986) and her homes, which have long intrigued the public. An essay by architect Beverly Spears describes the distinctive characteristics of adobe construction.

The bountiful illustrations include photographs made especially for this book showing the houses as they are today, photographs of O’Keeffe at home by major photographers, and her paintings of the houses and the landscapes surrounding them. Photographs of her painting and specific architectural components of the Abiquiu house are also included.

These photographs and their accompanying texts offer for the first time a compelling picture of O'Keeffe's life in New Mexico, how each house satisfied different aspects of the artist's personal and professional needs, and how O'Keeffe gradually transformed these Spanish Pueblo Revival style houses to reflect her modernist aesthetic.
