Modernists in Taos: From Dasburg to Martin

David L. Witt

Collectors and museums have now come to recognize the value of paintings by members of the Taos Society of Artists and other early arrivals. Much has been written about the works and lives of these early artists, but until now no one has told the story of a parallel development in Taos, beginning with Georgia O'Keeffe, John Marin, Marsden Hartley, and Andrew Dasburg, within the modernist tradition of painting.


Art historian and author David L. Witt has been the curator of the Harwood Foundation of the University of New Mexico. He is the past president of the New Mexico Association of Museums and the founder of the Southwest Art History Council. Witt is the author of several books, including Taos Moderns: Art of the New.
