Item Number: AF0121_SK


(1866-1936) Early lithograph print of an original couse painting. 7" x 5". Period matting and frame. One of the more accomplished figure painters of the original Taos Society of Artists, E. I. Couse was classically trained in Chicago at the Art Institute, in New York at the Art Students League, and in Paris at the Academie Julian. Couse was the first president of the Taos Society of Artists. His work was widely seen throughout the United States thanks to his patronage by the Santa Fe Railroad who used over twenty of his paintings for the cover of its annual calendar. Couse was a studio painter who used only two models during all of his days in Taos. Although he occasionally sketched in the open air, he preferred to pose his models using his extensive collection of Native American artifacts in his studio. He frequently repeated a theme of Indians squatting before a kiva fire place or in front of a campfire, using the light of the fire to provide a moody quality to the painting. He also often pictured Southwestern Indians engaged in traditional native arts, such as pottery making or weaving. Like other artists of his time period, Couse often mixed artifacts and clothing from a variety of tribes into a single painting.
