About

Pencil signed and titled in lower margin. Presented in a custom frame with all archival materials and museum glass, outer dimensions measure 15 ¾ x 18 ½ x 1 ¼ inches. Image size is 8 x 11 ½ inches. Gene (Alice Geneva) Kloss is considered one of America’s master printmakers. She was born in Oakland, California and established herself as an artist on the West coast. However, it was not until Kloss moved to Taos, New Mexico in her late twenties and began her life’s work of the New Mexican landscape and peoples, that she received national acclaim. Her artwork exudes an unmistakable content and style. Enchanted by the architecture, mountainous landscapes and rituals of the inhabitants, Kloss captured the beauty of the Southwest and surrounding areas. Her style was bold yet deftly simple, masterfully expressing the elusive Southwestern light. In 1938, she exhibited in Paris with Ernest Blumenschein, Georgia O’Keeffe, and John Sloan. She was also a member of the National Academy of Design, New York. Education: University of California at Berkeley; California School of Fine Arts, San Francisco; California School of Arts and Crafts, Oakland.
