Frank Applegate of Santa Fe: Artist and Preservationist

Overview

The extraordinarily talented Frank Applegate died prematurely at his Santa Fe home in 1931. Well-known in his day as an artist, collector, craft revivalist, and author, he is now largely forgotten. This splendid, readable biography should help make his name familiar once more. I give it an enthusiastic recommendation.

Overview

The extraordinarily talented Frank Applegate died prematurely at his Santa Fe home in 1931. Well-known in his day as an artist, collector, craft revivalist, and author, he is now largely forgotten. This splendid, readable biography should help make his name familiar once more. I give it an enthusiastic recommendation. The contemporary Hispanic artists of New Mexico -- especially the modern-day santeros -- owe a great deal to the visionary artist Frank Applegate. He helped to set the stage for the modern world to appreciate, collect, and love the religious art of my people. Carefully researched and elegantly written, this volume provides a well-rounded portrait of Frank Applegate, an artist who made significant contributions to the culture of Santa Fe in the 1920s. In telling Applegate's story, the authors provide a fascinating view of life in Santa Fe during that time. This book is lavishly illustrated with old photographs and pictures of Applegate's art work.
