Jake Haverstick (1898-1962)

Artists sometimes struggle in their chosen career as painters, but Jake Haverstick was fortunate in the 1930s to make the acquaintance of famous Taos artist W. Herbert Buck Dunton, one of the founders of the Taos Society of Artists. Dunton mentored the young Haverstick until he felt he no longer needed instruction.

Haverstick and his family then moved from Taos to Albuquerque where they stayed until both he and his wife passed away. Haverstick’s wife, Fay, made wooden hand carved frames for his paintings. Fortunately, this painting still retains the hand carved frame made by Fay Haverstick.

This oil on canvas painting is typical of the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in Santa Fe. The leaves of the aspen trees have just turned yellow as fall arrives. Deer are hanging around the pond.

The painting is signed J Haverstick on lower right. It is not dated. It is in original excellent condition, as is the frame.


Condition: this Oil Painting of Landscape with Aspens and Deer is in very good condition

Provenance: from the collection of a family from Albuquerque
