Andrew Dasburg was born in Paris in 1887, but spent his early childhood in Germany. He visited Paris in 1907 and became acquainted with many figures of the French avant-garde. Returning to the United States in 1910, Dasburg was a spokesman for abstract art. In the 1930s, he stayed mostly in Santa Fe. One of the most original and talented and certainly one of the most cosmopolitan artists to live in New Mexico, Dasburg stands even today as one of the earliest and greatest of American Modernist painters. His work, however, is easily recognizable as having a power, stature and enduring importance that go well beyond those of an artist of any mere school or region.
