Taos Painters Boxed Notecards

When Euro-American painters visited Taos, New Mexico, in the early decades of the twentieth century, they encountered a region rich in artistic possibility. The serene landscape, with its crystalline southwestern light, offered new sources of inspiration. The small town attracted an international mix of painters, writers, and tourists. The artists presented in this notecard set were members of the Taos Society of Artists. Founded in 1915, the organization exhibited the work of New Mexico painters on a national stage. These artists depicted the cultural and artistic transformations of the Southwest. Certain painters created romantic visions of a mythical past, while others explored the contemporary lives of the region’s indigenous and Hispanic populations. The four paintings included here are in the collection of the Petrie Institute of Western American Art at the Denver Art Museum.
