Warren E. Rollins (1861 - 1962)

In 1905, the research necessary for two historical paintings commissioned for the Lewis and Clark Exposition initiated Warren Rollins' interest in painting the American Indian. That same year the artist began the first of many sketching expeditions, headquartering at the Hubbell Trading Post in Ganado, Arizona, and painting the everyday events and sacred ceremonies of such villages as Hopi, Zuni, Acoma and Laguna. By 1910 Rollins was considered a leader in the Santa Fe art community: the first artist to have a public exhibition of work in Santa Fe, the first artist to hang his work in the Palace of the Governors and the founder and president of the Santa Fe Art Club. Often called the dean of the Santa Fe School, Warren Rollins devoted his life to "painting the Indians of the Southwest from the inside out."
