"Taos: A Painter's Dream" by Patricia Janis Broder
For almost a hundred years the spectacular land, brilliant light and color, and rich heritage of Indian, Spanish, and Anglo cultures have attracted painters to Taos, New Mexico. "We all drifted into Taos like skilled hands looking for a good steady job," recalled one artist. "We found it, and it grew into an urge that pushed us to our limits... We lived only to paint."
Taos: A Painter's Dream is an important contribution to the history of American art. Patricia Janis Broder, an authority on Western art, has prepared it from many scattered sources, including rare firsthand and unpublished accounts. More than 300 illustrations, 60 of them in color, are reproduced in a large, handsome format that does full justice to this appealing and vital strain of American realism. A chronology, bibliography, and notes on the artists are included.
