Summary or Abstract : Georgia O'Keeffe's art remains popular among a wide public and continues to intrigue viewers with its honesty, freshness, and symbolic female qualities that created a sensation many decades ago. Her life in avant-garde artistic circles in New York and New Mexico during the 1920s and 1930s and her tumultuous marriage to seminal photographer, Alfred Stieglitz have contributed to her image as a maverick artist. This popularity has generated an extensive literature on her life and art that is largely biographical or art historical. In contrast, this dissertation examined O'Keeffe's biographical and artistic data utilizing Levinson's psychological model of adult development that predicts that individuals will undertake various life tasks during age specific periods of adulthood. Patterns in O'Keeffe's life and art from age 28 to age 50 were compared to the age specific expectations of the model utilizing an in-depth case study. Results demonstrated that some of the patterns in O'Keeffe's life and art resembled the patterns expected from the model. Women's developmental theories proposed by Gilligan and Miller assisted in the interpretation of some aspects of O'Keeffe's life when the Levinsonian model did not adequately account for certain events. The profile of the artist that emerged provides further insight into O'Keeffe's life and art and illustrates the relevance of adult development models and theories in understanding both life course and artistic change. However, these findings raise questions regarding the application of Levinson's model to women, and the need to more fully understand affiliation and crisis among women especially at mid-life..
