“This book presents artists who have been typically categorized as making up the Santa Fe Art Colony. Others, who visited, are recognized for their significant names in American art and for having produced a representative body of work during their stay. As you come to know Santa Fe’s early artist community through stories about the artists’ lives and the walking tours through their neighborhoods, you will begin to appreciate the extent of their cultural contributions to Santa Fe. As you do, you will also gain an insight into life in the American Southwest in the early twentieth century. The stories of the artists’ lives illuminate personal goals, triumphs and day-to-day difficulties, but also touch upon the larger issues confronting the country at that time concerning health, politics, Native American issues, modern art and the effects of the Great Depression.” - From the Preface
