Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press, 1950. Folio. Item #028354

[2] leaves, 8 leaves of plates in portfolio [Harvest, The Spring, Dona Ascensione, Taos Indian woman, House in the sun, New Mexico village under snow, Rachos de Taos Church, Moonlight, the miner.] Each lithograph is tilted and signed in facsimile below each art piece.. Kenneth Adams grew up the youngest of five children and spent his time copying pictures from books in the public library. After art school and military duty, he moved to Taos, New Mexico, where he opened a studio and joined the Taos Society of Artists, a group of painters from Chicago and New York in search of an authentic America. Adams became an Associate of the National Academy of Design by the time he was twenty eight and worked for the Federal Art Project in the 1930s--Smithsonian. A pivotal figure between the founders of the Taos Society and the second generation of northern New Mexico artists, who were largely sympathetic with the art movements then current in New York and in Europe. Each of the lithographs are free of foxing or any defects. Owner's signature on title page of Allen Maxwell (1915-2012) who was a well-known art collector as well as the editor of the Southwest Review and SMU Press and book editor for the Dallas Morning News. All laid into portfolio of paper covered boards lettered in black with a few spots of soiling and a bit of toning to edges. Plates are clean and bright.
