Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Most Americans are familiar with traditional Southwest landscape paintings that include diffuse sunsets, cowboys atop horses, or distant adobe churches against mountain scenes. Once readers open this magnificent new book documenting New Mexico's contemporary landscape paintings, they may find themselves compelled to reconsider. John Axton depicts the landscapes in his oil paintings with shooting lines and abstract forms, for instance, while more traditional artists, like Morris Rippel, create watercolor visions with golden trees framing adobe homes. Campbell (Spirit and Vision: Images of the Rachos de Taos Church), curator of the concurrent Santa Fe exhibition, sets the scene in her opening essay, providing a cursory history of the artists who were entranced by New Mexico's landscapes and moved to the state in the early 1900s. Arts writer Deats (Evelyne Boren: Joie de Vivre) crafts 57 beautiful essays along with a brief biography of each artist that includes statements about the artists' techniques, connections to galleries, interests in New Mexico, and associations to contemporary art communities. The 200 images are masterfully reproduced. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries.-Valerie Nye, Coll. of Santa Fe Lib. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
