There’s not much to say about Georgia O’Keeffe that hasn’t already been said or written. The “mother of American modernism,” known for her vaginal flower images and southwestern landscapes, has been studied extensively. Dawn Tripp is one of the latest authors to undertake the monumental task of unraveling the renowned painter’s life. Her novel — not a biography — titled simply Georgia sheds light on O’Keeffe’s rise to fame and the rocky road she traveled to get there. According to the Huffington Post, “Dawn Tripp writes in much the same way as O’Keeffe painted: in vivid color and subtle shade.” Meet the author on Wednesday in Middlebury.
