The Indian Pueblo of Taos.
NY: J. Dewing Publishing Co., 1888. 11 x 7.5. Photogravure. This is a lush, idealized view of Taos viewed across a stream and through a stand of trees and brush. Two indigenous people are in the middle ground and the multi-storied pueblo is in the near distance. It is from Picturesque California: The Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Slope, California, Oregon, Nevada, Washington, Alaska, Montana, Idaho, Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Etc. (New Mexico obviously falling under the category Etc.). Alexander Schilling (or Shilling, 1860-1937) is primarily associated with the east coast, but his ÒtonalistÓ style is visible here in the strong play of dark and light. This is an early view of the pueblo, a decade before the arrival of the artists who would become known as the Taos School. $95. Item #26533
