Walter Ufer (1876 - 1936)

Born in Louisville, Kentucky, the son of a German gunsmith and engraver, Walter Ufer became one of the most successful and famous of the Taos Society of Artists. Ufer moved to New Mexico soon after he made his first trip to Taos in 1914, at the age of 38. Although he had been a studio artist, the brilliant sunlight and vivid landscapes of the West soon converted him to plein-air painting. He brightened the colors of his palette and became known for his light-filled oils of the Pueblo Indians and the Taos Valley countryside. In 1920, Ufer's success was heightened by his winning a prize at the Carnegie International Exhibition, an award that generally went to European artists and never before to a New Mexico artist.
