Joseph Imhof (1871-1955) signatureIn 1905, Joseph Imhof and his wife went to the Southwest for the first time to record ceremonies of Pueblo Indians. He built a studio in Albuquerque in 1906 and traveled throughout the region and then lived in New York before settling in Taos in 1929. In Taos, he built his studio on the edge of the reservation facing the Sacred Mountain behind Taos Pueblo.

Imhof was a master lithographer and painter who recorded images of Pueblo Indians from 1907 to 1955, a time known as the golden age of Taos, a time when artists known as the Taos Founders were producing their famous paintings. Like those other Taos early 20th century artists, Imhof painted scenes of Native American culture in and around Taos.

This lithograph by Imhof illustrates a farmer walking behind his saddled horse and his pack mule.  Behind them is Superstition Mountain, a range of mountains in Arizona located to the east of the Phoenix metropolitan area.  The shading from light at top to darker at the lower portion illustrates his adroitness as a lithographer.

A hardback first edition new copy of the book “Joseph Imhof Artist of the Pueblos” is included with the purchase of this drawing.
