+ Add Artist to My Preferences
Artists sometimes struggle in their chosen career as painters, but Jake Haverstick was fortunate in the 1930s to make the acquaintance of famous Taos, New Mexico 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.
Jake (Ralph E.) Haverstick (1898 - 1962) and his family then moved from Taos to Albuquerque, New Mexico where they stayed until both he and his wife passed away. Haverstick's wife, Fay, made wooden hand carved frames for his paintings.
