Additional Information

Of the six founders of the Taos Society of Artists, William Herbert “Buck” Dunton was the last to arrive in Taos, New Mexico. He would also be the first to die, and he was also the youngest at the time of his death at just 57 years old. And yet, in a shorter period of time, Dunton put his stamp on the West through his remarkable work. He also dearly loved Taos. In 1922, he wrote: “And when we speak of Taos it is not alone the cluster of grey, adobe buildings that crest the hill and constitute the town, but of the undulating swells of the sagebrush valley as well; the tiny Mexican settlements that dot the cottonwood fringed rivers; the skies of marvelous blue through which pass, in summer, regiments of stately clouds; the majesty of the mountains—those serrated, rugged peaks to the east and north and the gentler tone of the remoter ranges low lying in the west.”
