Victor Higgins (1884-1949) is best known for landscape paintings and scenes of Indian life in and around the artist's colony of Taos, New Mexico. This lavishly produced catalog accompanies a traveling exhibit of Higgins's work and aims to establish his place in the "greater pantheon of American art." The artist's early life is explored, as are the fruitful years in Taos, where he refined techniques, met other artists, and became acquainted with D.H. Lawrence and Mabel Dodge. The watercolors and oils are distinguished by bold forms and brilliant colors.
