After settling initially in Kingman, Arizona, and then Los Angeles, Mark Maggiori moved to Taos, New Mexico, where he built a studio that had the same views as many of the founders of the Taos Society of Artists. The French artist shared another bit of history with those distinguished painters: like Maggiori, four of the six founders (Blumenschein, Phillips, Sharp and Couse) had all studied in Paris before coming to America to paint the Southwest. He was in good company walking those streets, wandering those hills and painting the people of the Taos Pueblo.

And the Mountains Echoed was created in a busy period in 2017 just prior to Maggiori’s move to Taos. At that time, he was painting a great deal at the Grand Canyon, Vermilion Cliffs and the Grand Tetons, all of which show up in numerous works around 2017 and 2018. This was a tremendously busy period for the artist, who was still trying to establish a solid foothold in Western art. Works like And the Mountains Echoed were important early paintings that helped launch the artist to wider acclaim and stardom.
