    The focus here is narrow the artist's own collection of her work The book begins with an introduction by Russell Bowman and an essay by Barbara Buhler Lynes Nearly 100 color reproductions are then presented in three sections The Early Years New York New Mexico Five appendices an exhibition catalog chronology selected references and index round out the bookAt the time of her death O'Keeffe owned than half of her 2029 works Works were sometimes reacuired after being previously sold The reasons for her holding onto work andor keeping it from the public are varied personal importance sentimental or representative of key moment in career to maintain or increase market valuation to reunite an individual work with its series planned beuests to curate artistic brand identity hiding abstract lesser uality unfinished piecesPage 26Whether gained from a specific reading of Transcendentalist principles her absorption of Eastern concepts or her own deeply felt response to the world O'Keeffe seems to have sought a oneness with nature that she symbolized by light
