Additional Information

New York-based painter Eric Sloane was primarily known for his bucolic country scenes, including a great number of images of covered bridges all around the country, but the artist also spent large chunks of time in Taos, New Mexico, where he painted the clouds, the churches and the various pueblos. In his book Seventeen Dollars a Square Inch, Sloane tells author Forrest Fenn about his introduction to the town. “My first stay in Taos was the beginning of a love affair with the Southwest,” he says. “The mystique of the land left an indelible effect, and by the time I returned to Taos in 1931 as a professional painter, I felt immersed in the hypnotism of its enchantment.”
