Summary
"In Taos, Mabel and her husband, Antonio "Tony" Lujan of Taos Pueblo, built an enclave that consisted of a seventeen-room "Big House" and five guesthouses. From 1918 through 1947, scores of visitors found her home and its environs an inspiring place where they could help to create a new national art and culture. In Taos, West coast luminaries crossed paths with East Coast movers and shakers. With Luhan as their guide, hostess, and impressario, these European and American talents found inspiration in the mesas, mountains, Hispano villages, and INdian pueblos of northern New Mexico. This book - copiously illustrated with works by major artists and drawing on extensive collections of archival and scholarly research - illuminates the regional, national, and international significance of Luhan's life and legacy."
