About

An original 1940s signed etching by Gene Kloss (1903-1996), "Indian Summer" is a New Mexico landscape (Near Taos) with trees and brush in the foreground and horses, adobe buildings and mountains in the background. Edition of 75. Presented in a custom frame with all archival materials; outer dimensions measure 14 ¾ x 18 ½ x 1 ¼ inches. Image size is 7 ¾ x 10 ¾ 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. ©David Cook Galleries, LLC Education: University of California at Berkeley; California School of Fine Arts, San Francisco; California School of Arts and Crafts, Oakland.
