In 1899, Oscar Edward Berninghaus, an artist from St. Louis and a founding member of the Taos Society of Artists was sent on a commercial assignment by the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad to capture scenes from Colorado and New Mexico for their promotional brochures. That was his first visit to Taos, which sparked a lifetime love of Taos. Using his technique of applying quick and short brush strokes, he exposes the radiant light and life of the Southwest.
