Georgia O'Keeffe Drawings Ephemera

Identifier: MS-49

Content Description

In 1968 under Doris Bry's imprint of Atlantis Editions, Georgia O'Keeffe selected ten of her drawings to represent the range and variety of her work in this medium. The portfolio was titled "Georgia O'Keeffe Drawings" and two hundred and thirty editions were numbered and signed by O'Keeffe. The ten drawings were printed in 300-line screen offset lithography at The Meriden Gravure Co. in Connecticut.

In 1974, one hundred and twenty copies of "Some Memories of Drawings" were printed at the Meadows Press, Northampton, Massachusetts. Twenty-one drawings by O'Keeffe were printed in 300-line screen offset lithography at The Meriden Gravure Co. in Connecticut. One hundred editions were numbered and signed by O'Keeffe.

This collection includes one leaflet for the publication "Some Memories of Drawings", published in 1974, and three brochures and three order forms for the publication of "Georgia O'Keeffe Drawings", published in 1968.
