Like many people who arrived in Taos, New Mexico, Blanche Grant arrived with a colorful history. Born in Kansas, but educated in the arts in East Coast schools—with teachers that included William McGregor Paxton, Philip Leslie Hale and William Merritt Chase—Grant left a teaching position in Nebraska to see Europe. A year later she was in Taos, where she painted, was a printmaker, served as the editor of the Taos Valley News and researched Kit Carson. She lived a full life and died at the age of 74. She is buried in the same Taos cemetery as many of the members of the Taos Society of Artists.
