Riassunto: A unique mix of light, color, landscape, and culture served to attract artists to the northern New Mexico community of Taos beginning in 1898. In July 1915, six of these painters founded the Taos Society of Artists to sell their works through traveling exhibitions. To mark the centennial of the arrival of Ernest L. Blumenschein and Bert Geer Phillips in Taos, the only comprehensive account of the Society is reissued. An extensive new Preface discusses research on the Taos Society and individual artists undertaken in the fifteen years since the book first appeared. Interest in the early Taos artists has always been great. The reissue of this definitive documentary history of the Society makes available invaluable information on the artists and their organization. Provided are candid views of the personal lives of the artists, revealing their hopes and plans, the financial difficulties they faced, and finally, the conflicts between members of the Society. Rare photographs complement the text. Art collectors and historians will find this book invaluable.
L'autore: Dr. Robert R. White, an art historian, is coauthor of Bert Geer Phillips and the Taos Art Colony (UNM Press).
