Additional Details

Perhaps the most artistically restless and adventurous of the Taos Founders, Victor Higgins was acutely aware of the many currents of Modernism. You can see strands of Cezanne’s Cubism, the bold colorations of the Fauves, and swirling expressionistic passages that you might find in Munch. Fall Landscape contains all these, but also reaches back to design elements you might find in Rookwood pottery or in the landscapes of Van Gogh. The avenues of aspens, regular in their musical irregularity, seem to dance under the sunlight where it peeks out from between the clouds and grow quiet in the shadows when they pass.
