The Taos Society of Artists( Book )

4 editions published between 1983 and 1998 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A unique mix of light, color, landscape, and culture served to attract artists to the northern New Mexico community of Taos beginning in 1898. In July 1915, six of these painters founded the Taos Society of Artists to sell their works through traveling exhibitions. To mark the centennial of the arrival of Ernest L. Blumenschein and Bert Geer Phillips in Taos, the only comprehensive account of the Society is reissued. An extensive new Preface discusses research on the Taos Society and individual artists undertaken in the fifteen years since the book first appeared." "Interest in the early Taos artists has always been great. The reissue of this definitive documentary history of the Society makes available invaluable information on the artists and their organization. Provided are candid views of the personal lives of the artists, revealing their hopes and plans, the financial difficulties they faced, and finally, the conflicts between members of the Society. Rare photographs complement the text." "Art collectors and historians will find this book invaluable."--Jacket

Islands in the desert : a history of the uplands of southeastern Arizona by John P Wilson( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Viewed from the air, the plains of southeastern Arizona appear to be dotted by a series of islands in the desert. These mountain ranges, none longer than thirty miles and few higher than 9,000 feet, have witnessed continuous occupation for over 11,000 years. The human history of these upland areas from the 1530s to the 1930s is engagingly told in this volume. The desert and mountain ranges of southeastern Arizona are linked to some pivotal historical events: Coronado's search for the fabled wealth of Cibola; the raids by Chiricahua Indians led by Cochise and Geronimo; the seemingly endless cycle of mining booms and busts that resulted in fortunes made and lost; and border clashes during the Mexican Revolution. All these familiar events are told with reference to fresh information. In addition, this book offers a history of the upland region centered on control and use of the land, including chapters on mining, logging, ranching, farming, and tourism
