Additional Information

Nevada-born painter Warren Rollins has been eclipsed by more famous artists who worked in Santa Fe, New Mexico, but he quietly helped pave the way for many artists who had great success in Santa Fe and the broader Southwest. Not only did he have the first formal art show in Santa Fe in 1906 at the Palace of the Governors, and was the first president of the Santa Fe Art Club, but he was also known as the Dean of the Santa Fe Art Colony. He was friends with Gerald Cassidy, Sheldon Parsons and Eanger Irving Couse, and he once painted a portrait of Calamity Jane that was later lost in a saloon fire. He lived to be 100 years old.
