After short stints in Montana, Georgia, Virginia, South Carolina, New York and Texas, 21-year-old Fremont Ellis visited Santa Fe, New Mexico, for the first time. It transformed him. The young self-taught artist, who had to visually memorize colors he had seen on Albert Bierstadt paintings at the Met while he was learning to paint, was only in Santa Fe for three years when, in 1921, he helped create Los Cinco Pintores with Jozef Bakos, Walter Mruk, Willard Nash and Will Shuster. The modernist-leaning group didn’t last long, but it’s influence on the Southwest was immense.
