  • Category: Paintings

  • Item # 25218
  • SOLD

Albert Lujan was one of three early 20th century Taos Pueblo Indians who painted in the European style rather than in the two-dimensional style popular at the other pueblos. He sold his paintings, from about 1915 until his death in 1948, directly to tourists visiting Taos Pueblo.

He specialized in painting the multi-storied buildings at the pueblo, usually devoid of people. Typically, these views included one of the main pueblo houses, or an isolated adobe residence, each framed by beehive ovens, majestic mountains, a beautiful blue sky, and, occasionally, a ristra of chili.

Recently, an exhibit of some 40 works was on display at the Harwood Museum in Taos featuring the work of Albert Lujan, Albert Looking Elk Martinez, and Juan Mirabal (the three artists in the early 20th century who painted in the European style). There also is an excellent article on these three artists in New Mexico Magazine, January 2003.

This painting is signed Albert Lujan in lower right. It has been framed in a manner that the full painting is exhibited without losing any of it by an overlapping frame. This would be quite a desirable addition to anyone’s already fantastic collection of Native American art.

Reference: for a compelling and informative article on Albert Lujan please see American Indian Art Magazine Volume 25 Number 4 Autumn 2000.
