TAOS MODERNS

Postwar Modern Art
1940’s – 1970’s

Taos Moderns was an expression used for the first time in 1956 as an exhibition title at the University of New Mexico's Raymond Jonson Art Gallery, curated by the progressive artist Raymond Jonson.  This was a group exhibition of progressive, experimental, avant-garde Taos painters, including Andrew Dasburg, Louise Ganthiers, Ward Lockwood, Agnes Martin, Robert Ray, Emil Bisttram, Clay Spohn, John De Puy, Louis Ribak, Howard Cook, Ted Egri, Beatrice Mandelman, Thomas Benrimo and others.  Later this became the eponym used to described a loosely associated, and by the 1950's, quickly expanding group of modernist artists who culminated a new era of Post War (1940's to 1970's) Modern Art in Taos.

This new wave of mostly non-representational abstract expressionist art took hold as dramatically in Taos as it did elsewhere in the United States during this period. The newly arriving artists merged with the existing early modernist painters, some of whom had already been well established in Taos as Modernists. Together, with like-minded intent to push the limits of this new American art form, they were driven and struggled to define the method of how to interpret the light, landscape and ancient culture of the geography in an abstract form. This group of artists’, some of whom are only now beginning to receive recognition made Taos a crossroads of Modernism between the major art center of New York and San Francisco.
