Awakening in Taos - The story of a Pioneer Woman
Mabel Dodge Luhan, a powerful example of the early Modern sensibility, arrived in Taos in 1917. Following on the heels of publicity generated by the Taos Society of Artists, Dodge became the next great advocate for the unique culture of Taos. New York’s Modern Art critic, Henry McBride, credits Dodge with bringing Taos to the East-Coast Modernists’ attention. Dodge also wrote the first book on the Taos artists, titled Taos and Its Artists (1947).
