Andrew Dasburg
20th century
(Paris, France, 1887 – 1979, Taos, New Mexico)

"At age 24, Dasburg began studying with Robert Henri in New York. By 1909, Dasburg had met Picasso and Matisse in Paris and had begun a long fascination with Cézanne, whose composition and palette are reflected here. Dasburg soon became renowned as an avant-garde abstractionist, alongside Morgan Russell and Stanton MacDonald-Wright,. In 1917, Dasburg was introduced to the Taos art colony, a group of artists including John Marin, Marsden Hartley, and Georgia O'Keeffe, who worked in New Mexico. Like many other painters, he began dividing his time between Taos and New York. He softened his avant-garde style in the twenties, nurturing a more traditional approach. In the thirties, he settled in the desert, finding the landscapes amenable to his geometric, spare style of modernism. "
