Eanger Irving Couse’s Collection of Historic Pottery and Related Photographic Studies for Paintings
By Philip Van Keuren
Publisher: Pollock Gallery, Division of Art, Meadows School of the Arts
Softcover, first edition, 1998, illustrated, 37 pages
Couse, in search of a good place to find Native American models, arrived in Taos in 1902 and continued to paint there until his death in 1936. His house, which he purchased in 1909, is maintained by his grandchildren and is essentially as it was when the artist was alive.
Couse acquired pottery for use as props in his paintings. This book shares those pottery pieces and, in some cases, shows photographs of the paintings in which they were used.
Condition: very good condition, however, the spine glue is somewhat dried out and pages are separating from the spine. The book is very rare and is well worth considering.
