General Description

The most progressive of the Taos painters, Higgins studied in New York, Paris, and Munich before settling in New Mexico in 1914. In "A Mountain Ceremony", the simplified shapes and uniform brushstrokes create a weave of color in which the Indians are at one with the landscape, involved in a ritual that reaffirms their integral place in their cosmos.
