This unique title celebrates the amazing works of art which have poured forth from Santa Fe, New Mexico, over the last century. With over 70 full-color illustrations and an informative text providing an insight into the styles evolving from this Southwestern mecca for artists, Santa Fe Art provides an intriguing tribute to its many pilgrims.
The exhotic desert landscape, the uncanny light, the mild climate, and the rich cultures of the resident Native American and colonial Spanish of the region first drew artists there at the turn of the century. Its art colony peaked at the beginning of the Depression in 1929, attracting arrivals from schools in Paris and New York. As we begin this new century, the Southwestern renaissance is again reaching new heights.
There are 93 full-color and 12 black-and-white illustrations, 112 pages, hardback with slip cover, excellent condition, beautiful book.
