Summary
During the first half of the 1900's Santa Fe and Taos became havens for artists fleeing urban industrial setting. The elements of the Southwest with its awesome vistas, intense light, and isolation drew such notables as D.H. Lawrence and Georgia O'Keefe. These artists made the Southwest attractive to the world. Their lives and works contradicted the conventional image of the Southwest as a cultural desert. These artists and writers became active in town life running for office, decorating public buildings, restaurants, and bars ; they clamp down on builders who want to erect buildings out of keeping with the prevailing style of architecture; and start most of the local movements to improve the town. These aesthetes also precipitated a renaissance in Indian and Hispanic art. When federal policy forbade aboriginal life-styles, religion, and art in an attempt to Anglicize the Indians, the artists and writers of Northern New Mexico not only challenged these policies but began to incorporate primitive elements into their own works and to encourage the Indian artists themselves, This is the story of Santa Fe and Taos in their golden age, from 1900 to 1942, the age of the muses
